Young table tennis sensation and national U15 cricketer Niran Bissu yesterday marked his return to competitive table tennis by serving his way to championship honours in the boys U15 category of the Titans Table Tennis Club ‘Play to Conquer’ junior tournament at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH).
Bissu captured the title by playing unbeaten in the round robin final.
He defeated second-place Isaiah Layne 3-1 before downing Isaiah Sahadeo, Joel Rajkumar and Curtis McRae all by a 3-0 margin to complete his championship run following a hiatus from the sport for national U15 cricket duty.
Layne, whose only loss was to Bissu, finished in the silver medal position while Rajkumar and McRae shared the joint third position.
Meanwhile, the boys U11 title went to the easy going Colin Wong who also played unbeaten in that category.
Wong defeated one of the pre-tournament favourites, Dhanesh Persaud 2-0 and followed up with 2-0 wins over Chase Outar, Narayan Goodridge and Justin Leitch, who he defeated 2-1.
The other championship winners on the day were Jasmine Billing who continues her remarkable rise by clinching the under – 9 Open category which she dominated without dropping a set.
She defeated Samara Sukhai, Deja Datt, Akira Watson
and Chase Outar all in straight sets, 3-0.
Watson whose only loss came in her encounter against Billingy placed second while
Sukhai and Outar were joint third.
Billingy also copped the girls U11 category by once again playing unbeaten in the round robin final.
The tournament, likely to be the last of the year will conclude today with girls U15, boys and girls U18 and ‘B’ Class categories.
