jack petchey awards

06 Nov 2014

 
Two more hard working and enthusiastic members of our coaching squads received Jack Petchey Awards in recognition of their excellent progress.  Conol Thomas-Lambert and Diesel Harvey have made excellent starts to their table tennis career - both achieving promotion to our "B" squad recently and getting their first taste of tournament play.

 

Alana Mansfield continued on her winning ways with victory in the U11 event at the Chandlers 2 star tournament at Grantham on 1st November. As well as winning the U11 Alana also finished runner up in the U13 event.  We look forward to more successes on the tournament circuit!

 It seems to be almost non-stop table tennis events at BATTS this autumn.  On Sunday we had another in the Super Series attracting a high class entry chasing good prize money.
 
 

We were delighted to attract a huge entry of youngsters from all round our area at the first Grass Roots tournament of the season.  This was a chance for beginners with limited tournament experience to get their first taste of competition against children from other clubs. Our visitors included parties from Southend, Ilford, North Herts, Bedford, Braintree, Broxbourne and Bishops Stortford, as well as a dozen of our own juniors.  
It was a full and exciting day's play on 14 tables, with a round robin group for all players in the morning, and then another after lunch. The tournament was then rounded off by a mini-knockout for the eight most successful players from the two group competitions.
There were some extremely close matches in the quarter finals, where the contenders were: TJ O'Sullivan, Callum Stepsky, Esher Bahara, William Bettley, Luke Manning, Luca Bailey, Ed Crawford, and Sophie Chiang. In the semi finals TJ overcame William Bettley in a very tough duel and Sophie Chiang surprised Luca Bailey to come out top and a really close match. In the final the experience of TJ O'Sullivan was too strong for the phenomenal 8 year old sensation Sophie Chiang, who is definitely a prospect  for the future.

 
Following the phenomenally successful training camps organised by Adam Nutland in August we are delighted that Des Douglas wants to return to BATTS and partner Adam in another great series of coaching events.
So here is another great opportunity to be helped by one of England's greatest players of all time!
Des will be with us for three days during the half term holidays:
Tuesday 28th October - Wednesday 29th October - Thursday 30th October
Each session will start at 1pm and finish at 6pm
Booking is now open - you can reserve a place by contacting Graham Frankel by email: grahamf.batts@gmail.com
