Table Tennis County Champions for 6th Year in a Row
A big congratulations to Marling's U13 and U16 table tennis teams who overcame vastly improved opponents in the form of Crypt and Dene Magna and Balcarras teams to retain county championship titles for the 6th year in a row. An excellent performance from the the Under 16 team meant that they won all of their 24 matches. Similarly the newly reconstituted U13 team were also stronger than any opposition, winning 19 out of 24 matches. All the boys train at the Marling after school TT Club and three play TT for the county. By winning the teams have qualified to represent the county at the Zonal finals of the English Schools Table Tennis Association National competition, which takes place in Birmingham in January. We wish them all the best for the next stage.
Under 16s - Tom Powlesland, Danny Townsend, Felix Gregory, Elliot Gregory and Jamie Lomax (playing reserve)
Under 13s - Charlie Denton, Harry Tarr, Henry Miles, James Charlwood and Marcus Murray (playing reserve)
