Back in April 2017, Anna Hursey of Wales was the top evaluated girl at the ETTU Hopes Selection Camp. Now, she finds herself in a hefty battle for a place in the 2017 ITTF Hopes team, with the 2017 Hopes Girls strong group of players, coming from all 6 continents. Anna got off to a great start by grabbing a position on the Hopes leading group, and continues to work hard to improve her game.
