Hui Ling has recently returned from the 2018 Oceania Junior Championships where she was named Under 18 Girls Champion, and was part of the Silver medal winning girls’ team. This follows success at the 2018 Cook Islands Junior and Cadet Open where Hui Ling was a Quarter finalist in U18 Single Girls and a member of the Silver medallist U18 Girls Team.We look forward to sharing more of Hui Ling’s successes at the China Junior Cup in July.
