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.

Two girls from Bournemouth Sports TTC will represent their respective countries in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this July. Chloe Thomas, who now lives and trains locally, will represent Wales and Hannah Hicks England. We wish the two players all the best for the Games and feel that their selection is well deserved. Hannah of course has a previous Silver Medal in the Commonwealths and also a 4th place in the team event, when England just lost out to Malaysia. Perhaps this is Chloe's turn for a medal!
