Fred Perry (with the support of the Clubs for Young People, English Table Tennis Association and Sport England) have scoured the youth clubs of London, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Durham, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Cardiff to source the most promising Table Tennis talent.
A team of boys and girls aged between 12 and 16 years have now been selected to compete at the Urban Cup finals to be held in London on December 13th 2008.
The winning city will be crowned Fred Perry Table Tennis Urban Cup Champions 2008.
Backed by Sportsmatch government funding for 3 years, the Fred Perry Urban Cup will raise the profile of Table Tennis within inner city areas, accessing thousands of young people across the country and raising the level of participation in the sport. Fred Perry, the World Table Tennis Champion of 1929, would be very, very proud!
