CANNING, N.S. - The first tournament for the Nova Scotia Table Tennis Association was held at Auburn Drive High School in Dartmouth on Oct. 21.
Out of the approximate 50 players in the tournament, eight were from the Annapolis Valley Table Tennis Club (AVTTC) based in Canning.
Two brothers, Takahiro Vibert, 20, and Tomohisa Vibert, 22, played particularly well in the A division games, with Takahiro coming in first and Tomohisa third in the division. Both men, students at Acadia University, have played table tennis their whole lives and have been members of the AVTTC for the past three years.
Club director Steph Craan says it was not surprising how well the Viberts placed in the tournament.
“They are the top players in the province,” he says.
Craan says he hopes the team will do as well as it has done previously.
“Last year, our club had six players out of 18 who were on the men's and boys’ provincial teams representing Nova Scotia at the national championships in Toronto last summer,” says Craan.
Anyone interested in becoming involved with the AVTTC is welcome to join the group on Sundays from 1 pm to 3 p.m. at NKEC in Canning.
