Market Rasen Table Tennis Club
On Saturday 7th July 2018 the National Assoc. of Boys and Girls Clubs Table Tennis Championship finals took place at Dean’s Sport & Leisure, Lincoln. The Market Rasen Junior Table Tennis Club entered Jacob Bennett, James Naseby and Henry James.
Both Jacob and James already play in the Lincoln League in the 2nd Division (we came runners up this year – Jacob with an impressive 95% and James 55% in his first season of league play – quite an achievement for the young folk). Henry, playing in his first competitive competition ever at these Championships, will be joining the boys next season together with his friend Tom Weeks both from Middle Rasen and Alister McNeil of Moortown – another up and coming junior.
Jacob who played in the U’19’s category and finished in 2nd place, said, “This is the first time I have played against a guy in a wheelchair – what a great experience to witness how he still excels in his sport”.
James played in the U’16’s category and finished in 3rd place. He said “I am glad I came and enjoyed all my tight matches, I hope to play in some more tournaments in the future”.
Henry, who played in the U’14’s category and finished in 6th place said “This was the first time I have played in a tournament and I think that I have improved a lot having played it”.
