International Table Tennis
On Tuesday, November 21st, a small group of students went to the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth to cheer England on in their crucial European Championship qualifying match against the Netherlands. The visit provided the students, all keen and enthusiastic players, with a chance to see some top class table tennis live. The group included the entire Girls’ Under 13 Hampshire Championship winning team. The matches produced some enthralling play, and we were able to cheer England to a comprehensive victory. As well as watching the matches, the students had the opportunity to play mini table tennis, take on the robot pracice machine, and browse the shop. At the end, there was also a chance to get autographs from all the players and coaches. The visit proved to be very enjoyable, and has inspired the students to work hard to improve their game.
