End of Season Review

This last season has seen a number of changes in the structure and direction of English table tennis which have impacted on our club and as a result necessitated some changes in our own policies and development planning. The NGB has no funding for High Performance (and probably will not have until at the earliest 2017) and will be sending players abroad to compete even in major events only if they have a chance of reaching say the quarters or are able to self-fund.

Chloe Triple Champion in Nationals

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

The Welsh National Championships were played in Cardiff on the 6th and 7th June (in every other European Country the Nationals take place annually at the end of February/beginning of March). However the delay in staging the event meant good preparation for Chloe Thomas. Her pre-university college course was almost over, Swedish League matches completed and she had a top flight personal coach present in the form of Hannah Hicks!

Amy improves on Masters Ranking

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Fourteen year old Amy Blagbrough played in the Cadet Masters event on the weekend of 21st--22nd February in Burton Uxbridge. This is an invitation tournament for the top twelve under 15 girls in the country. Amy went into the event at number 8 and finished 6th and was the only unbeaten player on the Sunday. Interestingly Amy not so long ago finished 8th in the Junior Masters which is for the under 18 girls, all pointing to a great future over the next couple of years.
