Year 6 Girls Toast Table Tennis Triumph

Published

Two pupils from year 6 recently represented CtS at the Jack Petchey West London individual Qualifiers and secured gold and silver medals. It was quite daunting for them to walk into the large sports hall with 10 tables and so many older girls.  However, they found themselves in a group of 3 with a young lady from Braint Croft Primary who has been playing for 2 years at Crest Academy TTC.

Both girls overcame their nerves to play some great rallies and maintain their concentration, resulting in 3 extremely close matches. They displayed impeccable sportsmanship whilst playing under pressure and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They have now qualified to play in the main London Schools TT Championships and Charlotte has qualified for the National Schools Championships in Doncaster. It was the first big tournament they have competed in and were a credit to the school. Well done girls!
