Northland table tennis players are continuing to prove their skills outside of the region.

Nineteen-year-old Liting Guo took out the under-21 Women's Singles division of the Auckland Table Tennis Summer Tournament in an impressive display.

Guo also finished fourth in the Women's Open.

This was just her second tournament since moving to Whangarei from Tianjin, China to study at NorthTec.


Guo was ranked as high as fifth in New Zealand but has slipped to eighth after missing Nationals last year while out of the country.

Meanwhile 11-year-old Takaimaania Ngata-Henare was in fine form at the Canterbury Open Summer Table Tennis Tournament.

Ngata-Henare punched well above her weight, winning both the under-13 and under-15 divisions comfortably.

She also took on the under-18 division, completing another podium finish by placing third.

At the Auckland tournament, Ngata-Henare was runner up in both the under-13 and under-15 divisions.

The Huanui College student ranks 44th in the New Zealand Open Women's chart, the highest ranking for anyone under 15.
