AARON WILSON and Brittany Joseph will be in the spotlight when the Solo National Junior Table Tennis Championship serves off today at National Racquet Centre, Orange Grove Main Road, Tacarigua.

Wilson will be heavily favoured to defend his under-21 title after already capturing the men’s singles crown and leading Carenage Blasters to the A division team title during the open events last month. The other members of the triumphant Blasters’ squad, Luc O’Young, ranked sixth in the country, and last year’s national A2 and under-18 champ Jesse Dookie are among those in opposition.
