Staffordshire Schools Table Tennis Individual Championships
The 2018/19 seasons Individual Championships were a great success this year, run and hosted by Clayton Hall Academy over two dates in February. The Championships were supported by the following Districts in the County, Stone and Stafford, Stoke, Moorlands, Newcastle Under Lyme and Burton. There is still lack of uptake from the remaining Districts and this is something we would like to see improve over the coming years.
The U19 Boys event was won by St Joseph’s College in a straight final. We would love to see more Sixth forms and Colleges enter this age group in the coming years.
The U16 Boys event was won by St Joseph’s College L.Clarke beating Clayton Hall Academy player M.Blue
