Individual Table Tennis Tournament
Basingstoke Schools U11 Individual Table Tennis Tournament – 16th January 2020
This year’s tournament was held at Aldworth School on 16th January with a record 34 boys and 28 girls competing from 7 different schools, the overall standard higher than ever! All the children from St Mary’s played exceptionally well in the opening games, with the majority earning a place in the last 16 knock out competition. After some very tough opposition, the finals were eventually decided with the boy’s final being between St Mary’s and St John’s. I am pleased to say that Connor played fantastically in the final just losing out on a gold medal but he should be very proud of his silver medal! Well done also to Matthew who gained a bronze medal. Unfortunately, we lost out to St John’s on a place in the girl’s final, but again everyone should be very proud of the way we played against some very tough competition. A special mention must also go to Danielle who came 1st in the consolation final. Good luck to Connor who has now qualified for the County Final on 2nd February. Thank you to all the parents who stayed and supported, and a big thank you to all our children who displayed exemplary behaviour and sportsmanship throughout.
