Singapore Sports School post-secondary student-athlete Jaslyn Hooi Yue Yann and alumnus Jason Teh Jia Heng got off to a winning start in 2020 to claim the Women’s and Men’s Singles championship title respectively at the 2020 National Open Championships.

Top seed Jaslyn, who settled for runner-up position last year, capped a comfortable victory in the Singles finals on 11 January 2020. She took just 33 minutes to defeat second seed opponent Grace Chua with scores of 21-16, 21-8.
