City brothers Compete in Table Tennis Championships
Last weekend, brothers Joseph and Ben competed in the 45th England Butterfly Schools Individual Table Tennis Championships. Held at the Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton on 21 April, around 300 players representing 50 counties gathered to compete for the Under 11, 13, 16 and 19 titles. The tournament is the largest one day event in the table tennis calendar in England. Representing London East, Joseph and Benjamin successfully defended their Under 16 Boys and Under 13 Boys titles respectively.
As a result of his win, we have just received word that Benjamin has been selected to represent England at the British Senior Schools’ Invitation International in June this year. Unfortunately, Joseph was ineligible to be selected as he has already represented England at the World Schools’ Table Tennis Championships earlier this month. Many congratulations to the brothers.
