In the women’s division, Mungyeong City Hall’s Song Ji-yeon, NH Nonghyup Bank’s Moon Hye-kyung, Lee Min-seon, Lee Jeong-woon, and Okcheon-gun Office’s Lee Su-jin and Ko Eun-ji are strong candidates for the Taegeuk mark. In the men’s division, Kim Tae-min and Kim Jin-ung of Suwon City Hall, Yun Hyung-wook of Sunchang-gun Office, Park Hwan and Lee Yo-han of Eumseong-gun Office, and Seo Kwon and Kim Ki-hyo of the Incheon Sports Council are strong players. From doubles, two groups are drawn first, and then one spot in singles is determined by competition between players excluded from doubles.

Jeong In-seon, president of the Korea Soft Tennis Association, said, “I think it is very meaningful to hold the national selection match in Sunchang this year as well as last year.
I hope that the players will achieve good results by demonstrating the skills they have honed over the years through this selection match .”
