The event would not have been possible without the hard work of Table Tennis Ireland, Referee Arnold Morgan and Assistant Referee Niall O’Flaherty, and all the umpires. The players’ parents and supporters also played a significant role in making the weekend a successful one.

Overall, it was a fantastic weekend of table tennis, and we congratulate all the players who participated. With such talent on display, the future of table tennis in Ulster looks bright.
