’s U13 Boys Table Tennis team are through to the Regionals after two nail-biting competitions. They were crowned champions in the first; the Schools competition, which then took them through to the Zonal finals at Kirkby Stephen Grammar School in Cumbria.

Competition was tough with each of the four boys playing two singles matches against two different players (8 matches in total).
