The annual tournament will see nearly 140 athletes compete in women's and men's singles and doubles as well as mixed doubles.
The organisers said the event was a chance for young players to sharpen their technique and skills. The best performers will be selected for the national team to take part in coming international tournaments, notably the Southeast Asian Games in the Philippines this November.
The finals are scheduled for June 14.
