TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017/18 MONDAY 6 NOVEMBER 2017

        All,

I am sending you notification of the upcoming first round of the NSTTA Team championship as you have supported this event in the past.
 
You may remember from Elaine's emails last year that the committee has now reduced in size to 2 members.  
 
This means that Andy and I will be contacting you about the team and individual championships.  However as we both work full time we will not have the capacity to chase up entries and late entries will not be able to be considered.
 

We would therefore ask that you support the table tennis players in your school by registering your entries by Tuesday 21st October.

Please submit the completed entry form electronically to:

andy.wood@ntlworld.com

The £5 fee per team can be paid by cheque or bank transfer.  This fee MUST be received by the closing date.

Please get back to us if you need any more information.

            NSTTA Report to NCTTA - AGM 22.5.17

 

1.     The NSTTA team event Mon 28 Nov 2016 was back again on a week day evening at Weavers. There was a small change in the number of teams entered. 7 schools, 3 primary and 4 secondary ( CCS withdraw so have not been included in the total ) entered 13 teams into the event. We also welcomed entries from Corby’s Kingswood School.

The winners, presented with certificates –

 U19 Boys Malc Arnold, U16 Boys Hatton, U13 Boys Hatton, U11 Boys Croyland U19 Girls no entry, U16 Girls Duston U13 Girls Duston, U11 Girls no entry. Teams went on to represent Northamptonshire in the next round of the competition in Grantham ( Jan.) except U19 Boys who withdrew.

Progress through the rounds has been reported but no Northants team made it through to the finals.

2.   The NSTTA Individual event was held on 27 Feb 2017 at Weavers School. All age groups were represented in the competition with 69 entries received from 7 primary and 11 secondary schools. The date enabled the county/national players with their many other table tennis commitments to compete. The winners went on to represent the county at the national event at Aldersley LV on 29 April.  

The Northamptonshire winners, presented with trophies -

U19 Boys – Ben Tombs, Duston            U16 Boys – Ethan Ali, Hatton

U13 Boys – Alex Cochrane, B Weston U11 Boys – Rishan Ganatra, Victoria

U19 Girls – Evie Elliott, Manor              U16 Girls – Bhavika Mistry, NSG

U13 Girls – Lakshmi K Hemanth, B Stopford  U11 Girls – Kiera Burgess, Millway

 Congratulations to Bhavika who progressed through to the semi finals and was also selected to play in the Senior Schools International event in Jersey in June.

3.   Thanks again to Kevin Bird and Mike Wildman for volunteering to be Tournament Organisers on the event days and preparing the draw. Their assistance with the team and individual events is much appreciated.

4.   NSTTA paid all entry fees required by ESTTA for the next rounds of both the competitions.

5.   This year saw “complications” arising from very late entries to the draws and non payment where players arrived on the day to play. All were accommodated to facilitate expectations BUT despite raising invoices and passing on to schools and parents – three schools still have not made payment. Some changes for future tournaments have had to be added to our competition rules. Any school that does not wish their pupils/players to represent them cannot then play and leave NSTTA in a position of having a player able to potentially represent the county in the next round.

6.   ESTTA advise this next year’s format ( 2017/18 ) etc for the events will remain the same but TTE may make changes in following years.

7.   Please be advised that Wendy and I have stepped down from the committee at our recent AGM.

8.   As the committee has been reduced to two officials going forward – Helen Ramsden and Andy Wood – volunteers are being sought as new officials for the NSTTA two events held in Oct/ Nov and Feb and attendance at three annual meetings. A request for assistance has been made to Greg Yarnall / Lucy Budworth TTE.

An extra ordinary meeting has been called on Wed 12 July 7.30 pm at Weavers Meeting Room to discuss the future. If you could assist your help and attendance would be very welcome

 REPORT FOR NCTTA MEETING 18.1.17

1.     The Northants Schools Team Event was held last year at Weavers LC and  the qualifying teams went on to play in the zone round in Grantham, last weekend on 14/15 January.  Reports back from the schools :-

U11 Boys – Croyland primary, Steve Banister – “the Croyland boys did better than expected…the only 4 counties represented were Beds, Northants, Suffolk and Leics …. The way the boys played pleased me the most. “

U13 and U16 Boys – Sir Christopher Hatton, John Hughes – “U13 team did not qualify and the U16s won so will go through to the next round”.

U19 Boys – withdrew.

U13 Girls – withdrew.

U16 Girls – Duston, Paul Wood – “On count back the team finished 3rd in the competition but the performance was worthy of a great deal of credit considering the level of the opposition. Well done to Anna Wilson, Katie Harris, Emily steers and Hannah Wye for representing themselves and the school so well.”

U16 Hatton Boys team will go on to play in the ESTTA team regional finals on the weekend of 4/5 March.
