Soffi Jenkins, Caitlin Williams, Callum Evans and Jac Jenkins are all in Kiskunfelegyhaza, Hungary for a ETTU training camp with the best from Europe this week.
Under the coaching guidance of former German coach Richard Prause, the players will be able to grab some of his knowledge which led Germany, and most notably, Timo Boll, to the top in the world.
Wednesday and Friday will see all the players engage in a tournament and this will test their progress.
On another positive note, the weather is fantastic and the surroundings are beautiful with a swimming pool and gyms nearby.
Chloe & Ryan take the titles
Chloe Thomas showed her amazing power to win the Welsh Top 8 in Cardiff today. Chloe, who represented Wales at the World Championships, last May in Rotterdam, beat team-mate Charlotte Carey 11-8, 11-9 & 12-10. Charlotte had to dig deep in the semi final to beat Nicole Hall, who had several match points in the last set. Charlotte won 11-6, 9-11, 11-5, 9-11, 17-15. Chloe beat Anna Labuz of Cardiff 11-6, 11-4, 8-11, 11-9 in the second semi.
Anna then beat Nicole for the 3/4th place with an 11-7, 11-8, 11-8 win.
