Congratulations to our table tennis team who played in the zone finals in Tower Hamlets on Saturday. Whilst most of Winchester was still asleep, the team headed up to London in the small hours of Saturday morning, kindly transported in Westgate School’s minibus who also had an under 13 team in the same event. The competition started with the group stage against East Sussex and Hertfordshire. The boys played several matches back to back and demonstrated excellent sportsmanship and courage throughout.
Competition was certainly tough as the best players from across the country played against one another. The St Bede team were supported by many friends and family who also made the trip to London – thank you supporters! After winning against East Sussex 5-3, the team made it through to qualify for the semi-finals against Kent. The suspense was high in our final game and although our boys played brilliantly, the final result saw Kent going through to the finals. Congratulations to our team for their excellent performances! Well done to Westgate’s under 13 team who also made it through to the semi-finals stage. A fantastic time was had by all.
