We have held three tournaments inviting full-time students under the age of 26 and had about 16 entrants each time, mostly from Japan and Iran. We are sure there are hundreds of eligible players around the world, possiblythousands that we are not reaching. We need your help.We believe that one way to get more children involved in the game and the competition is to make it a “team” sport, with each country being represented by 3-player teams. And of course, countries like Japan and Iran can have more than one team.So we ask your help … to find and enlist students to represent your country and create teams. Then we will set up on-line competitions and award wonderful prizes to the students. We will also provide free lessons, videos, and learning materials to all children around the world. And we will give students a chance to play practice games with pros like Mochy, Phil and others, and get advice.
We ask you to develop a list of students … and we will sign them up, give them official nicknames to use in events (including a challenge ladder room they can play in any time), and as soon as we have enough teams, we will set up competitions between teams and countries.
We can hardly turn down this challenge – so we will be trying to coordinate at least one UK team and preferably more! If you’re interested, or you know anyone who is, put them in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll assemble teams. Even better, if there are three of you who would like to represent your local club as well, we can put you forward as a team! It would be great to be reporting on yet more international success in future…
