      Challenger Series

      Hello, do you know about Challenger series?
      There are not top players of the world, but they play almost every week and play quite good


      Their main site is here:
      Challenger series

      And they also have youtube channel here: Challenger series - youtube channel

      Today it was won by a Slovak player (I am proud of it) - Peter Sereda, who beat in final Czech player Peter David..

      Also Liam Pitchford won it several times

      What is this about? Is it something to do with the national teams or is it individual stuff?
      Don't hesitate. If you want to reach your goal, just go for it!

      I think it's individual Anders. Yup, you have to be 18 to register. Because it requires you to travel and staying in a hotel. Food and lodging at their sponsored hotel is provided, which means it is fully paid. If you are under 18, usually adults have to accompany you, probably parents, and they want to avoid any complications that might arise if you are travelling in groups. Also they don't want to have the responsibility of a custodian if under aged players are allowed to participate, and if anything happen to these under aged players, they will be held responsible.

      Check out these two matches..
      The first one is one semifinal of one tournament between Šereda and Pištej .. very good match couldnt know till the last moment, who will win..




      And then!
      Watch this one!
      Marek Klásek vs. Tomáš Sadílek ..
      Klásek in red, Sadílek in dark blue..

      Howmuch would you bet at Klásek in set no. 4?
      Howmuch would you bet at Sadílek?
      Sadílek was 2:1 in front in games.. and 9:0 in fourth..

      Watch it by yourself, amazing!



      After seeing this you can really say: NEVER GIVE UP!!!

      Pitch should have a good shout but he seemed pretty knackered after last week. Hopefully he's feeling fit again

      Keinath should win, then he can celebrate by doing my interview lol
      I'm hoping to try and play the Challenger series at least once for the experience when I move to Prague in July. The competition is played in Ochsenhausen I believe as they offer for you to stay and train for a couple of days following the event. A great opportunity to train in the same club as Liam Pitchford, Andrej Gacina, Kirill Skachkov and Tiago Apolonia :P and also Hunor Szocs trains there too
