For the 4th year in a row the Marling U16 and U13 table tennis teams overwhelmed their District opponents in the first stage of the 2017-18 English Schools Table Tennis Association (ESTTA) competition. Both Marling teams won comfortably with a total of 23 out of 24 match wins. Even though a number of schools had strengthened their teams since last year, the Marling boys demonstrated a high degree of consistent play and thoughtful tactics, which allowed them to produce an unassailable set of results. We wish the squad every success in the next stage of the competition, the County TT School Games Championships, which are due to be held in early December. The successful team players on this occasion were : 

U16 team : Marcus Holba (not in photo), Tom Powlesland, Ed Loader & Alfie Eddy

U13 team : Jamie Lomax, Felix Gregory, Elliot Gregory & James Lilwall

The Marling TT squad trains weekly as part of the popular after school Marling TT Club, which is run by three Table Tennis England approved coaches. It has recently expanded to accommodate approx 30 boys with the addition of new TT tables funded by Active Gloucestershire and extra improvements to the practice environment funded in part by the Renishaw Charity Committee. A big thank you to both organisations for helping the club grow!
