Holly Nicolas, Australia’s number one junior girl, will be heading to Fiji in three weeks for the ITTF-Oceania Junior Championships looking to defend her Junior Girls’ Singles title. She will be favourite to take top place on the podium and the AUD$1,500 scholarship.

Last year Holly only dropped two games on the way to the title; will there be challengers to take the crown this year?

Underground table tennis website Arghk had a chat and snap with the Aussie representative, so now’s your chance to get an up close look at one of Oceania’s top junior athletes.
