Team Table Tennis Success!
Brilliant performance from all at the Basingstoke Schools Under 11 Team Table Tennis Tournament.
The Basingstoke U11 Team Table Tennis competition took place on 2nd October at Aldworth School. There were 7 boy’s and 7 girl’s teams, all consisting of 4 players, from 3 schools – St Mary’s, St John’s and Great Binfields. All teams played each other which meant lots of games for the children with some games very close and resulting in a third set!
After many games and a tense time waiting whilst all the scores were added up, the finals were announced between St Mary’s A team and St John’s A team for both the boys and girls. I am pleased to say that St Mary’s won the girl’s final and have now qualified for the County Final which will take place in Southampton on 25th November. The boys narrowly missed out but still came home with silver medals which is a fantastic achievement as the standard was very high. We also gained bronze medals in both competitions with both St Mary’s B teams gaining 3rd place.
As is always the case, we are very proud of all the children who took part who are always so sporting and enthusiastic and a real credit to St Mary’s and we wish Megan, Imogen, Willow & Mataya the very best of luck at the County Final. Thank you also to all those parents who stayed and supported.
