Hot shot table tennis players from Ernest Bevin College took top honours at the eighth annual Jack Petchey London Schools’ Table Tennis Team Finals.

The competition, held at the University of East London, bought together 107 players making up 25 teams from 20 schools across London competing in four age groups; Boys and Girls under 11, 13, 16 and 19.

The Wandsworth School has a reputation in this competition with countless wins over the eight years.

This year they lifted the Boys Under 16 title winning the round robin competition to edge out close rivals Croydon’s Whitgift School.

In the Boys Under 13 event the team were runners up in the knock out competition losing to Sutton’s Wallington Grammar School 0-6.

Coach Henry Medellin said “I have coached here for 13 years. This is a really good competition and our players get great experience from it.

"We like winning and will be back next year to add to our tally.”

Winners and runners up of this competition go forward to play in the English Schools’ Table Tennis Association Regional finals in February.
