ITTF-Oceania Tour

Vanuatu table tennis win in New Caledonia competition

The event had the added bonus of being the first 2019 ITTF-Oceania Tour event.

In an all New Zealand affair, the men’s singles final was a rematch of the 2018 ITTF-Oceania Tour | Fiji, with Dean Shu facing Nathan Xu in a showdown for the title.

In a closely fought match, Shu was able to hold off his teammate and win the men’s singles title 4-3 (6,-7,4,7,-6,-9,4).

It was a solid performance from Shu all weekend, who had cruised through his earlier matches without dropping a single set.
