Xi’an Silk Road Table Tennis Invitational Winter 2024

On Thursday, January 11, and Friday, January 12, 2024, Xi’an International School hosted the 4th edition of the now Xi’an Silk Road Table Tennis Invitational.

Over 50 students competed in the Invitational representing 6 schools. We are so excited that our students were able to take part and use what they had learned throughout the season in a tournament setting.

During the Winter Season, over 70 students at various age levels worked hard to improve their Table Tennis skills and love of the game. Through a love of learning, there were so many impressive improvements made during the season. We are so proud of all our students on our U08, U11, U14, and U19Table Tennis Teams!

The top students in each gender and age group were selected to compete in the Invitational. All our students were eager to test their skills against others. Once again, we are so thankful and proud of all our students who competed; they showed the highest level of character and sportsmanship throughout the event!
