Table Tennis Tournament.
This year's first Table Tennis development and tournament took place on Thursday January 21st at Thomas Middlecott Academy, Kirton. Players from Sibsey, Frithville/New York, Sutterton and Tower Road met there. 25 boys and 15 girls in total.
Students from Thomas Middlecott Academy were on hand to coach, support and umpire the players and the games. The players were randomly split into groups of 5 and were given a table to play at. There they played everyone in their group.
Once, all the first round games were completed, the groups were reordered according to where the players came in the first round! They now all played each other in the new group for their final placing in the tournament. Group 1, for the boys, saw 5 Tower Road boys all playing each other.
The final results: Will in 1st place, with Ethan 2nd and Joe 3rd. Sibsey took first place in the girls' results with Libby 3rd.
Well done to all the players. Everyone's game really improved over the tournament and really enjoyed the opportunity to play different people.
Many thanks to the students from TMA for all your support and coaching. Thank you to Matt Haslam for organising the event and thank you to the supporters. Finally, a big thank you to the parents who helped with the transport of the team.
