Bribar Plymouth Junior 2 star Table Tennis Tournament 13th September 2015
On Sunday 13th September the first Open Junior Table Tennis tournament of the season was played at Eggbuckland Community College in Plymouth with a turnout of over 70 junior players.
Beginning the day with the under 11 boys saw an exciting match from Somersets’ Bertie Kelly, who managed to beat Devon’s Jakub Piwowar to take home the first trophy of the day. Next came a hard fought battle for the under 13’s title seeing Matthew Stanfield take on Bertie Kelly for his second title game. Matthew managed to prevent a second win for Bertie, taking home the trophy to Dorset.
In a closely fought under 15’s final, Dorset players Kai Major and Alex Malloch played for the title with Kai just overpowering Alex in the fifth game.
Plymouth Talent Development squad member Carl Baldry held on to his under 18’s title after a heated game against Stovers’ Kelvin Cheung who just lost out on the title.
With the girl’s games being just as exciting as the boys, Angharad Bemen took on Plymouth Talent Squad player Gemma Kerr for the under 13’s girl’s match. Gemma who is now Nationally ranked 7th in the under 13 girl’s did not disappoint, winning her match and the title. The under 15’s girls match then saw Gemma Kerr take on Nina Kadir from Avon for Gemma’s second title play off, unfortunately Plymouth’s own Gemma did not stand up to Nina who won the under 15’s category. Winning the under 18’s girls for the second time in a row was Jazmin Johns, beating Nina Kadir in an exciting final match.
A big congratulations to all the winners of the day and thank you to all those who made the tournament such a great success.
