Club Championships

On Thursday 12th the club was the scene of a number of entertaining matches during our 'Open' Championships. Nathan and Jamie progressed from the 'group of death', with Nathan looking particularly dominant. Hugo and Martin were successful in the second group as were Stephen and Ed in the 3rd. In the quarters Steve met Martin and Jamie played Ed with the younger players proceeding to the semis. Jamie then provided the shock of the tournament beating Hugo in three close straight games while Nathan cruised past Stephen to book his place in the final.

Hard Bat Tournament

Our hard bat tournament on Sunday 1st December provided at least one major shock. Jordan Pang, drawn in the same group as Zac Dowling and brother Hugo, won the group beating Hugo 12 - 10 on the 5th and coming back from 0 - 2 down! In the other half of the draw Nathan Bingham was dominant, playing almost the same as he does with his normal racket. Eric Buckley also demonstrated his skill with the hard bat and most of the younger performers had little chance against him.

Amy Excels at Nationals

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Amy Blagbrough went into the National Championships in Preston on Sunday the 24th November ranked at number 9 in England in the Under 15's. Realistically this gave her the possibility of reaching the Quarter-finals. She in fact reached the semis in both the U15 Singles and Doubles, which for a 13 year old competing in the 15's is 'punching well above her weight' to say the least. She dominated in her group winning all her matches comfortably, but after the group every match was tough.

Hannah Hicks and Tressa Armitage representing England in the Senior Home Nations in Cardiff over the weekend of 15th to 17th November came away with gold in the team event.

Gloucester 2 Star

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Good results from the young Bournemouth Sports team at the Gloucester 2 Star on Sunday 10th November. Jordan Pang, who has been playing well in the Bournemouth League, reached the final of the under 11's, losing to the No 1 Seed, Jamie Liu. Jordan performed well over the day and was not overawed by the more experienced opposition. Finn Morgan-Bayliss did equally well to reach the final of the under 18's, beating one of the visiting Danish players, Peter Trans, 3 - 1 in the semis.

JBL Success

Good results at the Junior British League weekend on the 12th -- 13th October for Bournemouth Sports Teams.
