11-year-old Wales` girl played her first LIEBHERR European Championships in Luxembourg last week

 

Anna HURSEY of Wales goes down in history, proudly stated Table Tennis Association of Wales! This 11-year-old girl played her first LIEBHERR ITTF European Championships in Luxembourg last week.

 

Fresh from winning the EuroMinis and Qualifying for the ITTF Hopes Team for the World Cadet Challenge in Fiji in October, coaching staff of the TTAW thought it may be a risk to put her in the line-up of the senior national team.

 

She played in the Challenge Division, having 4-2 individual score in her six matches. It was a great experience for Anna as she was the youngest player by far competing in Luxembourg or for any European Championships ever, possibly, stated TTAW.
