District Table Tennis Tournament

The Boys U-13 and U-16 Table Tennis North East Hampshire District Tournament was played on Wednesday 12th October at the Samuel Cody School.

There were three teams representing Wavell. The Under 13As: Dylan Mogg, Jack Cartwright, Jake Baldwin, and Thomas Austin. The Under 13Bs: Joe Sparkes, Oliver Sheen, Ciaran Johnson and William Phippen.  The Under 16 Team: Sam Rotimi, Curtis Wotton, Michael Watts and Frederick Newbould with Roving Reporter Owen Plumridge-Baker doubling up as Reserve and Warm-Up Partner.


When we arrived everyone was ecstatic to start playing and when it started we dominated. Our Under 16s won every game and got to the Final. So did our Under 13As. Our Under 13Bs played well and ended up 4th out of 8 overall which is very good since they were all Year 7s playing in their first District Tournament.


In the Finals we faced our biggest challenge yet, Robert Mays School. Our best player in the Under 16s, Sam, was beaten (which is very rare) against their top seed. Unfortunately, we lost all of the games in both Finals but we came second out of eight teams so that is still a win in my book.
