Following their success in the different Team Leicestershire Table Tennis Finals, multiple LLR based schools travelled to Blackburn to compete in the National finals of the Table Tennis England Schools Team National Championships.
The day started strongly for Leicestershire, as St Peters (Market Bosworth) U11 Boys and St John the Baptist (Leicester) U11 Girls performed excellently, with both sides finishing second in their groups of 4. A fantastic experience to be shared by both teams, who can be proud of their achievement of being in the Top 8 table tennis sides in England for their age group. Well done to both teams in their first National Competition!
Special mention goes to Charles Rowell of St Peters (Market Bosworth) and Amy Cansdale of St John the Baptist (Leicester), who performed exceptionally well in. Both players will be representing Leicestershire in the Table Tennis England Schools Individuals National Champions in April, alongside 6 other County Champions. Good luck in April!
