Pow­er­gen’s Mikah Stroude (1,750) and Blasters’ Jew­el Nid­han (1,550) com­plete the top five play­ers

In the Un­der-18 girls’ Khellawan al­so won the Sil­ver Bowl crown and heads the stand­ings with 1,900 points, 400 ahead of Ed­wards-Tay­lor while her club-mate Shreya Ma­haraj (1,450), Ster­ling (1,200) and De­r­ah Ra­moutar are the oth­er top five play­ers

Mean­while, Dou­glas has main­tained his stran­gle­hold on the top rank­ing in the Un­der-18 and Un­der-21 boys’ age-group

The na­tion­al age-group cham­pi­on, Dou­glas start­ed the sea­son by win­ning the Sil­ver Bowl ti­tle to push his points tal­ly to 2,250, well clear of club-mate Abra­ham Fran­cis who has 1,600 fol­lowed by Blasters’ tri Mikhail Dook­ie (1,400), Nicholas O’Young (1,300) and Nico­las Lee (1,300)

Dou­glas who dou­bled up in the Ju­nior Sil­ver Bowl by cap­tur­ing the Un­der-21 di­vi­sion as well as a big­ger lead over Joshua Maxwell in the U-21 cat­e­go­ry in the rank­ings with a tal­ly of 2,250 points to his clos­est chal­lenger’s 1,500

Fran­cis com­plet­ed a 1-2-3 in the rank­ings for the Parkites with 1,400 while N’kosi Rouse of So­lo Cru­saders (1,300) and Blasters’ Luc O’Young (1,200) fol­low

De­spite the sud­den stop in ac­tiv­i­ties for the play­ers, Dou­glas has so far en­joyed a stel­lar start to the year

This af­ter he and Arun Roop­nar­ine se­cured two of the four spots on the na­tion­al team for the Se­nior Caribbean Ta­ble Ten­nis Cham­pi­onship which were card­ed for Cu­ba from April 2 to 9 but had to be post­poned

The duo will al­so be this coun­try’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Sin­gles/Dou­bles Qual­i­fiers which were al­so post­poned from its orig­i­nal sched­uled date in Ar­genti­na from April 15 – 19 due to the COVID19
