Table Tennis Success… Borough Champions

Table Tennis Success... Borough Champions

Recently we took three teams to the KS3 Table tennis tournament. The girls, who had never played table tennis before from yr 7 won 1 drew 1 and lost 1. This was against girls from yr 9. Really good performance. Well done to Maryam, Suaada, Freddie, Anita, Nadia and Rameen.

The boys B Team finished half way in their group with some strong performances. Well done to Kevin, Liam Nikil and Zak.

The A Team won all their games and showed a great deal of resilience as they came from 2 – 0 down in the final to end up winning and becoming Borough Champions. A very well done to:

Mohammed Rahman
Elton Owenga
Michael Fuller
Harris Humayoon

They were all fantastic and showed a great attitude throughout the competition.

Below is a report from Michael Fuller, Year 9, followed by a photograph of the team.

The Lampton School Table Tennis KS3 team went to Heathlands School on the 6 November. I was part of the team and went to their sports hall. I played against Isleworth and Syon School, Chiswick Community School and Heathlands School. It was difficult, one of the boys I was playing against from Isleworth and Syon had a lot of smashes up his sleeve. I ran him around the court and he was trying to return the ball so I top spinned him. Then I got the point and it was match point to me and I aced him with one of my super serves and I won the match. I was very excited and relieved to beat Isleworth and Syon because it was my second to last match.

I was so keen to be in the team that I played in school every day and after school and watched matches of professional table tennis players. I won some matches at school and beat my opponents at the trials. When Mr Barry told me I was going to be in the team I felt happy and proud.

In the next round I feel that it will be very difficult because we will be playing champions from previous years. But I am going to prepare by playing different people from higher levels in table tennis so that I can be ready for tougher opponents. I feel very proud of myself and my team for their hard work and training and I am looking forward to the next round.
