CATHERINE SPICER has dropped to fourth in the national table tennis rankings after missing the Trinbago Open Tournament two weeks ago at National Racquet Centre, Orange Grove Main Road, Tacarigua.

The two-time defending national champion was at the top of the rankings with 3,050 points going into the penultimate of the five major tournaments the season. But after winning the previous two tournaments – Silver Bowl Championships and National Championships – Spicer did not participate, and since she had won the title in the inaugural edition last year, she lost the entire 750 points.
