Three Grey College table tennis players did exceptionally well at the South African Schools Championship which was held during the December holidays at the University of Pretoria.
Pieterse and Talal Hussain won bronze in the boys u/18 team event which ranks
them third in the country!
Talal also won bronze in the boys u/18 singles. He is ranked in the top 3 in the national championship, whilst ranked no.2 in South Africa for boys u/15.
Both Thys and Talal are ranked under the top 8 in the county now and therefore they will be selected for the national team trials in March/April 2020.
Muddaththir Mukhtar is ranked in the top 6 in the country for boys u/15 and will be selected for the national team trials to travel to the African Junior Games in Madagascar during April 2020.
