Success at Bexhill Academy Banded Event

TABLE TENNIS ROTHER
Table Tennis the Way You Like It
A total of 37 competitors from around East Sussex descended on Bexhill Academy on 21st March for the first Bexhill Academy Banded Table Tennis Closed. The day consisted of both morning and afternoon events with players divided in bands according to their experience. The format was designed to lead to some close and exciting matches throughout and players were not disappointed as this proved to be the case. All events were played on a purely group basis to ensure maximum play and experience for all competitors. As well as attracting entries from Lewes and Eastbourne local interests were well represented with players coming from throughout Hastings and Rother. Players consisted of those that had just been playing for a matter of a couple of months to those with a few years experience under their belts. Organiser, Kevin Haffenden was delighted with the response.’ I was encouraged by the response to this, our first event at Bexhill Academy. It was great to see some many young people of all abilities and levels of experience come together for an enjoyable days play. There was a great atmosphere in the hall.’ There has been a lack of competition for Juniors in East Sussex in recent years and Table Tennis Rother are keen to address this situation and establish a series of closed events in the coming year.
