The 9th NatWest Jersey Open to be staged at the Geoff Reed Table Tennis Centre in St Clement from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th April 2015 is the test event for the huge NatWest Island Games which is being held in our beautiful Island Sat 27 June – Fri 3 July 2015.
“Repeat entries have been coming in thick and fast for our increasingly popular NatWest Jersey Open at Easter part of the ETTA Grand Prix circuit for 2014-15,” said Craig GASCOYNE Tournament Organiser. “Good Friday sees the team tournaments for men, women, veterans and juniors, giving players something different and an extra day of competitive play.”
The tournament is organised as part of the Grand Prix Circuit administered by the English Table Tennis Association which witnesses a series of tournaments held in various locations throughout the United Kingdom.
Players compete in “Bands” of ability according to their status. “Saturday and Sunday are the standard Grand Prix format of bands and then open singles events”, continued GASCOYNE. “Early booking is highly recommended to get good transport deals either by flying or by ferry; coupled with this we have negotiated an excellent deal with a great hotel next door to our purpose built table tennis centre and also car hire with Avis.”
Jersey is a popular holiday destination and April is the perfect time to visit with the Spring flowers in bloom and the weather sunny and warm.
“Everyone can therefore enjoy some excellent table tennis and couple it with a holiday break in our beautiful island during Easter, which is a perfect time to see the Island at its very best”, added GASCOYNE. “Not only this, but all events over the three days carry prize money from with a minimum total fund of £ 2,500.00; last year’s Men’s and Women’s Singles Champions, Chris DORAN and Emma VICKERS took home just under £1000.00 between them”.
