Parrs Wood Greater Manchester table tennis champions

Posted by Stockport TTA on 30 November 2015

Parrs Wood High School's table tennis team are greater manchester Schools Champions and will progress to the regional finals.

The events were staged at Oldham Hulme Grammar School in Oldham on Sunday 29 November 2015, the school did the events proud by providing a first class venue.

"All the boys played their part with William Gregson and William Hoyle unbeaten and Alfie McIntyre picking up crucial matches in each fixture," explained Stockport Table Tennis Academy Head Coach David Hulme.

Almajd also battled hard and his points would have been crucial if the final went to a points count back, which it very nearly did when William Gregson looked certain to lose against Altrincham. But the 13 year-old, the most experienced player on the team, fought back to win in five games.

The next round will be in Blackburn in the New Year.

The team's success this weekend was just the next stage in a very positive start to the 2015-16 season for the boys: William Hoyle entered the top 100 U15s nationally earlier this season and teammate William Gregson is ranked in the top 30 U13s nationally. Both William's compete on the junior open circuit and represent Manchester in the Lancashire & Cheshire League.
