Blackpool Junior 4 Star

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Good results for Bournemouth players in the Junior 4 Star in Blackpool on Saturday 17th May. Zac Dowling demonstrated that he is almost back to top form after his layoff from table tennis. He reached the final of the Cadet Band 1 losing to Josh Harland, the No 1 Seed, who is ranked well above him, but beat the 2 Seed Artur Caltabiano in the semis. In the Open Zac lost in the Quarters to 2 Seed and England player, Alec Ramsden, but was in no way outplayed or overawed and should be pleased with his continuing progress. Amy Blagbrough despite having a tough group, won this comfortably and cruised through the early rounds beating top Welsh cadet, Lydia John 3 – 1. She lost in the semis to No 2 Seed and higher ranked player, Isabelle Joubeily.
