The England U16 and U21 teams to compete in the 2018 World Youth Team Championships, in China in August, have been selected.
The teams will be:
U21s - Sam Anoyrkatis & Theo Anoyrkatis; Harry Madden & Kripa Panchagnula; Liam Sanderson & Daniel Winter; NPC Michael Byrne
U16s - Jasmine Bakhshi & Henry Rose; Jamie Fegarty & Liam Fegarty; Oscar Selby & Andy Cope; NPC Giorgio Provenza; coach Laura Porro.
Giorgio has written a new blog, with updates on the U16 squad's training and on their participation in an online competition organised by the WBF. To read it click here.
We are delighted by the number of members, clubs and counties which have made a donation to the fundraising effort to support the four England junior teams which will be competing in China, but there is still a long way to go. Fortunately, there is still plenty of time to make a donation, and all contributions, of whatever size, are gratefully received. See here for more details.
