U13 Girls Table Tennis Team make National Finals
The Thomas Aveling U13 Girls’ table tennis team has qualified for the finals of the English Schools’ Table Tennis Association Butterfly National Team Championship to be played at Hinckley Leisure Centre on Saturday 23rd March.
Success at County and Zonal events led the U13 Girls table tennis team to qualify for the South of England Regional Finals in Bristol on Saturday 9th Feb. The standard of play was exceedingly high but the girls fought hard for every point and were victorious over teams from London (7-1) and Dorset (5-3). With two wins under their belt the pressure was on for their last match against a very strong team from the Black Country. It was a closely fought match with some nail biting moments. The girls held their nerve and were successful in getting a decisive result which resulted in them winning the U13 Southern Regional Final. All four Thomas Aveling girls really did themselves and the school proud with their gutsy and talented performances against some strong opponents.
Congratulations to Katie, Scarlett, Lily and Stephanie. We wish them the best of luck for the National Finals in Leicester.
