In a bid to encourage staff/pupil participation in Sport we held the very first monthly St Joseph’s Table Tennis championships on Friday the 8th of December. Unfortunately, the only member of staff to show up was too late to make the draw and was therefore unable to compete for the trophy.
The competition itself was an amazing spectacle as 8 players took to the tables to compete for the honour of being our first champion.
Played out on a round robin basis and after a three-way countback to determine the finalists it was down to Jack Farrington and Ben Akehurst to see who would be our first winner.
The final turned out to be an epic as Ben raced into a 7-0 lead only for Jack (with typically resolute defence) to turn it around and come through as the winner 11-9.
The next competition will be held on Friday the 19th of January and every second to last Friday each month.
The first Badminton tournament will take place this Friday the 15th of December.
