TABLE TENNIS TALENT
English National Senior Table Tennis Championships Qualification.
A year 10 student from St Francis Xavier School has qualified for the English National Senior Table Tennis Championships following the qualification competition that took place in Nottingham over a weekend in January.
Rebecca Savage excelled to finish in fourth position to secure her place. She started the competition seeded only 18th and with only 10 places available her prospect of success at the beginning of the competition did not look promising. However, Rebecca did extremely well to win four of her six matches in the opening qualification group. Rebecca went on to win her first two matches in the knockout stage to finish in fourth position overall. For a 14 year old girl to qualify for the English Senior National Championship, competing against adults, is an outstanding performance.
