Team Leicestershire: U13 & U16 Girls Table Tennis Finals

The Team Leicestershire Secondary Girls Table Tennis County Finals were held at Knighton Park Table Tennis Centre at the end of November. Team Leicestershire provides opportunities for young people who aspire towards further progression and success in sport and physical activity by providing a traditional competitive school sport offer across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland.

Thank you and congratulations to everyone that took part, it was great to see many aspiring players showcasing their fantastic table tennis skills. All the teams who attended on the night had progressed to this stage of the competition by winning their local School Sport Partnership competition and were looking to go one step further and be crowned County Champions.

As always, the standard of table tennis was extremely high with some particularly impressive rallies taking place throughout the competition. All teams and players should be extremely proud of not only how they played, but also the level of sportsmanship and respect they demonstrated throughout the evening. Many of the players also helped to umpire and score the matches, developing those important leadership skills.

U13 Competition

Winners: Rushey Mead (East Leics)

Runners up: Brook Mead (West Leics)

U16 Competition

Winners: Rushey Mead (East Leics)

Good luck to Rushey Mead who will go on to represent Leicestershire and Rutland at the Regional Competition!

Many thanks also go to Mike, Tim and Peter from the Leicestershire Schools Table Tennis Association and Knighton Park TTC for hosting us at these events, as well as all the staff who came along and helped umpire games.

We hope everyone enjoyed the tournament and hopefully we will see you again soon at a future Team Leicestershire County Final event.
