Senior Home Nations 15th -- 17th November

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Interesting that 3 girls from Bournemouth Sports will represent their respective countries in the Senior Home Nations in Cardiff during November. Chloe Thomas will play for Wales and Hannah Hicks and Tressa Armitage for England. To say the least a strange decision from England selectors regarding Tressa, who has been training in Austria for some time now, especially in view of the fact that they effectively dropped her during her last season in the Juniors and will have little idea of how she is playing at the moment.

A Bournemouth Sports team comprising of Hannah Hicks, Nathan Bingham, Chloe Thomas, James Whitehorn (Saturday) and Tony Clayton (Sunday) faced a whole new challenge with the departure of George Downing from their ranks and absentees due to the UK School Games, but nevertheless acquitted themselves well across the weekend.

Super Thursdays

As many of you will be aware we shall be running a ‘higher level’ invitation event at Bournemouth Sports for some of our premier players on Thursday evenings during the coming season. This will not necessarily be in the form of a league every week, as some weeks we shall run individual events. It is intended to commence on Thursday the 5th September and run through till April/May 2014. The opening event on the 5th September will be in a singles format, starting at 18.30, with players feeding in as they arrive and competing against a number of other players on the night.

English Leagues Cup Competitions Finals

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Excellent performances by Amy Blagbrough and Becky Kuzu in the finals of the Bromfield Trophy, the competition for the best junior girls' league team in the country. Wembley and Harrow were seeded 1 and Kettering 2 with Bournemouth and Warrington unseeded and the tournament was played on a 'round robin' basis. The first match against the 2 seeds, Kettering, was never going to be easy with Nicole Bird ranked at 19 (the highest ranked girl in the event) in the Juniors against Amy's 63 and Becky's 73.

National League

Played at Cippenham on the weekend 20/21st April, Bournemouth Sports finished in fourth position in the play-offs for the right to be in the Premier Division next season. Although well beaten 8-0 by the all-conquering Greenhouse Progress team they came very close to snatching the second qualifying spot. After 6-2 wins against both Derwent and Godalmling Coversure, they drew 4-4 with Speedwell Chesterfield and lost 3-5 to Urban Progress, the second place finishers.
The team consisting of George Downing, Hannah Hicks, Nathan Bingham and Stephen Foster all managed to win several matches against higher ranked opponents and the three male players should see a big leap in the next National Ranking List. George and Stephen won 6/10, Nathan 4/10 and Hannah 3/10.
