Plant City, Fla. - Tenth anniversaries are often marked by giving gifts crafted from aluminum or tin, but at this year’s 10th ISF Junior Women’s World Championship, participants will only have their eyes focused on the gold.
This year's tournament is set to begin July 1st in Brampton, Ontario (CAN) and conclude July 7th with teams from around the world testing their skills in a new open format.
ISF President Don Porter is also excited about this year’s tournament. “This is an exciting time for us; for ten years we have seen the junior event grow and with this open format it will provide one more opportunity for increased participation and growth.”
Headed to Brampton are 16 teams representing all five of ISF's regions (Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania) - Australia, Botswana, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Great Britain, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, United States, and Venezuela - each one representing some of ISF’s most competitive areas.
Competition will heat up quickly as the 66 game schedule (enclosed here) kicks off with what always proves to be an exciting matchup between the Czech Republic and Puerto Rico. 2011’s defending Champions from the United States will face some very tough competition from the always strong, Japanese, Canadian and Australian teams while several other emerging powers look to be spoilers.
The Organizing Committee has been hard at work to insure both the teams and the competition are the best. “We are looking forward to what our hosts from Brampton will bring to the event and to this very competitive Championship,” President Porter commented. “We are also looking forward to this being a very special celebration, and we know the fans and the media will enjoy all of the fierce competition.”
