The Guyana Table Tennis Association (GTTA) has shortlisted players to represent Guyana at the Pre-Cadet tournament in Jamaica, the Cadet/Juniors in Cuba, and Senior’s Caribbean Championship in Dominica Republic.
Missing from the men’s team are Idi Lewis, Godfrey Munroe and Christopher Franklyn.
Lewis, a former Caribbean Junior Champion and Caribbean men’s singles bronze medalist and Franklin, were members of the Guyana men’s team which took part in the Caribbean championships held at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
But they, along with defending champion and GTTA General Secretary, Munroe, did not participate in last year’s National Championships which resulted in Nigel `Sniper’ Bryan capturing the men’s singles title.
