Curriculum: U16 Table Tennis Team Crowned County Champions


Last Wednesday, we took sixteen table tennis players to the Cornwall Schools Table Tennis Championships at Penryn College.
Playing in teams of four, in a straight knockout format, our Under 13 team comprising of Gilly Smith, Noah Teagle, Owen Middleton and Matthew Upton, progressed confidently through the early rounds but sadly lost a narrow encounter with Penair in the semi-finals. However, our Under 16 team of Blaise Hinshelwood, Perry Oakes, Sam Legg and Tom Stephens looked very strong from the outset and made their way through the rounds without too much difficulty, to meet an equally strong Penryn College quartet in the final.
Fortunately, it was the RLS team who kept their nerve and edged a high quality final, therefore being crowned county champions and progressing to the south west zone final in Plymouth in January.
We wish them the best of luck in the next round.
