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:
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.
