Table Tennis – County Tournament Report
This was a competition for the top players in the County.
An excellent day for our 3 boys, ending with Sammy Kelly in the U15 boys, being selected to represent Yorkshire, both in the individual and team competitions to be held in early June for the Inter Regional finals.
A great achievement for Sammy and the school. Finishing 2nd in his group, with 2 wins and 1 loss, he met the U13 winner in the quarter finals and won 3-0. He then met the No 1 seed in the semi-final, and lost in 3 close games.
Theo Kelly and Luke Furlong were in the U13 competition. Theo was runner up in his group with 2 wins, only beaten by the overall runner up. In the quarter final he lost in 3 close sets to the No 3 seed.
Theo also entered the U15 event—winning games but no matches in his group, but played well. Theo is an U12 so can play next year.
Luke finished 3rd in his group with 1 win, so was placed in the consolation event, winning his opening match before losing to the eventual winner of the consolation event. Luke also entered the U15 event and lost 5 games in 2 of his group matches, and was beaten in the quarter final of the consolation event.
With Theo representing Yorkshire in the U11 county team last season, this is a great double for the Kelly family.
