Rising table tennis star Tom Jarvis will represent England at the Hungarian Junior and Cadet Open next month.

The 14-year-old from Skegness will compete alongside Sam Mabey and Danny Lawrence in the Junior Boys’ event.

In this prestigious competition the Junior Girls’ squad comprises Commonwealth Games mixed doubles silver medalist Tin-Tin Ho, plus Maria Tsaptsinos and Lois Peake.

In the Cadet section, Alex Ramsden and Harry Dai will represent the boys and Denise Payet and Kate Cheer the girls.

The event takes place in Szombathely, near the border with Austria, from Wednesday, November 5 to Sunday, November 9.

National Talent Development Coach Matt Stanforth said: “It’s one of the premier Junior and Cadet events.

“It’s got a full entry list, so it’s going to be a tough competition but the players are working hard and it will give them and the coaches a good indication of where they are at the moment as we work towards the European Youth Championships next year.”
