Terrific Table Tennis

Chaucer's Year 5/6 Table Tennis Team produced some terrific performances at this evening's tournament at Kirk Hallam.

Chaucer's Year 5/6 Table Tennis Team produced some terrific performances at this evening's tournament at Kirk Hallam.

Playing a round-robin competition against Cotmanhay, Hallam Fields and Shardlow, the team of Iris Castro (c), Emily Pickering, Emily Hopkins, Katelyn Hanson, Ashton Anderson, Jyamor Manzano, Sam Parkes & Edward Moss combined for an incredible record of 20 wins from the 24 singles matches they played, with only 4 losses.

The aggregate scores were;

Chaucer 8 Vs Hallam Fields 0; Chaucer 6 Vs Cotmanhay 2; Chaucer 6 Vs Shardlow 2.

These results mean that Chaucer has won the Erewash North Schools competition and will move on to play in the Erewash Final against Grange Primary School, who won the South Schools event. The winner of that head-to-head match will proceed to County Finals.

A special mention goes to Katelyn Hanson, who came into the team on very late notice after an untimely withdrawal due to sickness. After only being asked to play just before lunch-time, Katelyn had no hesitation stepping in to save the day and then went on to win all 3 of her matches! Superb attitude!

Many thanks to Mrs Baggot for her help with the team's ping-pong preparation and to Mrs Hopkins for assisting with transport. Thanks also to Hannah Gill and Erewash School Sports Partnership for a great feat of organisation, in getting through so many matches in so little time.
