TABLE TENNIS; Young served with official warning
Tuesday 03 August 1999
Young was criticised for throwing the ball back instead of upwards but, playing with Kubrat Owolabi in the mixed doubles, won 21-15 21-19 against the Luxembourgers Sandra Caenaro and Benedicte Meyer.
Three other England pairs reached the second rounds of the doubles events - with two pairs going through because opponents from the Ukraine could not produce matching shirts.
Alex Perry and Helen Lower (Staffordshire) in the mixed doubles, were awarded a walkover against Elena Kovtun and Stanislav Gorshton, of Ukraine, and later reached the second round against Kovtun and Takijana Sorochynska in the women's doubles. In both cases the Ukraine players could not produce identical shirts.
The first England defeat came in the men's doubles first round when Carl Prean and Perry lost to the Koreans, Oh Sang Eun and Lee Chui Seung.
Some players representing Yugoslavia have been refused visas to enter the Netherlands, but those players who are with clubs based in the European Union and in possession of a so-called Schengen passport - under rules of the European Treaty of that name - will be admitted.
