The quality of all players was superb which gives great hope for the future of our game.
The under 14 group was won by Tom Venn against Niamh Ramsay who herself had to qualify in 2nd place after a play-off game against Tom Beer.
Nathan Jukes topped the under 18 group by beating Owen Salisbury 13-11 in the fifth.
In order to gauge the 2 groups we had semi-finals between the runners up and winners of the groups. Nathan Jukes beat Niamh Ramsay 2-1 and Owen Salisbury beat Tom Venn by a similar score. The grand final between Owen Salisbury and Nathan Jukes saw a change in the group result, with Owen taking the title. Congratulations to both players for such a high quality game.
A really great afternoons table tennis was had by all, thanks to Marcus for his work and also to all the others who helped and scored, and last but not least to all the players who competed in such a competitive but sporting spirit.
