Table Tennis Stars Compete for Places at National Finals

BDA’s table tennis team attended the London qualifiers last weekend, vying for places at the individual national finals to be held in Doncaster in June.

With players competing in the boys and girls U13 and U14 categories, there was a lot riding on the event.

Despite an extremely high standard, Cacherel Mirjah stormed to a monumental victory, securing his place in the U13 boys finals while Israel Awolaja grabbed his spot in the U14 finals with a hard-earned third place.

Demi Reid managed a very impressive fifth place in the U14 girls competition, which grants her first reserve status and a wildcard entry should a current competitor pull out.

Well done also to Eman buanani, Yassmine Al-Amire, Yassin seddik and Sudais Salihu, who worked very hard but just missed out on the qualification places.
