Kent schools table tennis tournament update
On Wednesday 14th November 2018 Thomas Aveling students joined schools from around Kent at Medway Park for the table tennis tournament.
Thomas Aveling entered two teams, boys under 13 and girls under 13.
The boys had 5 teams in their section which was won by Skinners school. They showed some excellent skills and determination despite coming up against the eventual winners and are to be congratulated on their outstanding attitude and sportsmanship.
Unfortunately for the girls no other school entered a team in their age group. This means they will automatically go forward to represent the area in the zone competition in January 2019.
To enable the girls to take part this time though they were entered as a guest team into the u16 category.
The skills displayed were outstanding and despite playing against girls 2 and 3 years older than themselves they finished second which is an exceptional achievement.
Both teams were a credit to the school not only in the way they conducted themselves whilst competing but also in the fact that they volunteered to help the event run smoothly by scoring/umpiring matches for other schools.
Congratulations to both teams. The girls team was Katie, Scarlett, Lily, Stephanie and Millie. The boys team included Alex, Sam, William and Adam.
Well done to all involved!
