22 young table tennis players between the ages of 7 and 17 all met up at Exeter City Football Club on Tuesday 10th October to compete in the first session of the new Individual Exeter Junior Table Tennis League.
The juniors were divided into four different divisions according to their age and estimated playing standard, with six players in each of the top two divisions and five in each of the lower divisions.
All matches were played in excellent spirit with some hard fought, close games and some very impressive play in all the divisions. A few helpful adults from the main Exeter League umpired the matches, with assistance from a couple of parents as well, while many others stayed throughout to watch their children competing.
With all play all within the divisions there were a lot of matches, but thanks to our volunteers we succeeded in completing all the games shortly before 8 pm with the following results:
Division One - winner Ollie Gould, runner up Marcus Lee
Division Two - winner Ethan Callard, runner up Marlon Blum
Division Three - winner Ben Walker, runner up Zac Kingdom
Division Four - winner Owen Gardiner, runners up Keira Callard and Joseph Edwards
Winners of all three lower divisions will be promoted for the next session, which is due to take place on 7th November. Well done to all the competitors and volunteers, and a special thank you to ECFC for use of the Park Room, an ideal venue.
