Adventures of a new Famous Five.

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Dusk was setting on a still May evening and all was quiet and peaceful in the sleepy village of Child Okeford in the heart of deepest Dorset. You could easily hear the sound of crickets chirping and serenading in the adjacent meadow, the occasional clucking screech of a male pheasant, and the sweet smell of new mown grass wafting around. The five approached the old building from the winding narrow lane. Sanja being the oldest of the group said to Matt “Are you sure this is the right place” as the five walked quietly towards the huge old rustic oak double door that led into the Village Hall!
I can hear several voices coming from inside the hall, so this must be the place” said Damien to Tressa, and ten year old Hugo spoke in his quiet and angelic voice saying “I can hear people talking too, Damien”. Matt assured the others that this was the place they had to be and at 6pm sharp, according to Uncle Gary’s instructions. Matt pulled the heavy and creaky door open as the five strolled quietly into the lobby entrance of the Old Village Hall. Laden with all their heavy bags and rucksacks they were eager to get inside, take the weight of their shoulders and meet everyone. Uncle Gary appeared from the hallway and welcomed them into the playing hall where an instant loud cheer from a packed audience of over 100 people greeted the Famous Five.

Cadet Masters -- Tressa Runner-up

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Tressa Armitage, recently promoted to England Number 2 on the April ranking list, held the position and finished runner-up to Emily Bates, England No. 1, in the Cadet Masters at Cippenham this weekend. Tin Tin Ho finished 3rd, Vicky Smith 4th, with Jessica Dawson in 5th place. Tressa only dropped two matches during the weekend to Emily and Jessica, won 6 in three straight and won 3 others in five, demonstrating her usual strong finishing in the final set. Tressa's placings in the Junior Masters (5th) and the Cadet Masters (2nd) leave her in a very strong position for selection to the England Cadet Team in the European Youth Championships later in the year in Turkey.

Girl Power Wins the Day

The titanic clash between the A and B teams for the premiership title did not disappoint. Both teams had 72 points going into this final match, but the B team had a games average of 167 – 33 and the A team 164 – 36. This meant the A team had to win, a draw would suffice for the B side. The average age of the B side on the day was less than 17. We will tactfully not reveal the average age of the A team this season – sufficient to say that when Tony Clayton beat Stellan Bengtsson in the late 1960’s he was yet to become world champion and the A team has won the Bournemouth premier every year since 1993.

Coach Education Day - 26th June 2010

.....COME ALONG AND WATCH!

Junior Masters 2010

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

For those of you who don’t know much about the Junior Masters this is the single toughest event on the table tennis calendar. The top 14 under 18 girls and boys in the country meet and all play all. For any player with technical or mental weaknesses there is absolutely no hiding place. This tournament above all poses important questions for the player to answer and demonstrates clearly which performers have the psychological stability and endurance to bounce back after defeat.

As a cadet (playing under 15 events) ranked only at 13 in the juniors and meeting girls up to three years older, Tressa was not really expected to achieve too much. She actually finished in 5th position, beating the 3rd and 4th placed players and only losing to the runner-up in a close fought 5-set match. Six of her 12 matches (one player dropped out injured) went the full distance and Tressa won 4 of these on the 5th showing good mental toughness.

On the Sunday she did lose to a couple of players she would normally beat but then bounced back to play some truly awesome table tennis in the last couple of matches. On reflection Tressa will probably consider she could have finished 3rd or even runner-up. But events like this are a learning curve in themselves and she will still be one of the younger players in this competition next year.
