Eastwood become Essex Schools Team Champions

Four boys from the Eastwood Academy became Essex Team Champions at the Table Tennis competition on Friday last week. The event took place at Harlow’s Batts Centre, where all the top schools in the county gathered to take part in the table tennis section of the School Games.

The Eastwood Academy took part in the Under 16 event and consisted of experienced players Sidney Dorn and Dan Payne, who were joined by Harry Harwood and Billy Praim-Singh, their victory came about by beating 5 other schools which included local rivals Deanes. The four boys had only one game each to play in every match, as time was against us due to the large numbers of competitors taking part, which left no room for any mistakes.

Both Sidney and Dan won all their games, leaving Harry and Billy to pick up whatever they could against the others,  these two lads have only just started playing the sport, so any results would have been good, but they did well enough to turn the tide in Eastwood's favour.

The Eastwood team will now move on to the regional finals, representing Essex, and this will give them a little more time to work on their skills to see what we can do against other Counties Top Table Tennis Schools.
