Rep selection fillip for promising WBHS teen

SHARE

Waitaki Boys’ High School’s Josh Tonkin has been selected for the Under-18 Otago Boys’ table tennis team.

It will be the first time the 16-year-old has competed in the age group but he will have confidence following a fine run of recent form, with his Otago team narrowly missing out in the South Island Team Championships final against Canterbury.

Tonkin was in action again last weekend at the Otago Open where he took out the under-21 mens doubles title and he will be looking to make an instant impact at the under-18 level.
