The NSW Primary Schools Championships was played on Monday 21st May at Sports Halls, Olympic Park. Almost 200 students participated and we were grateful to have Mr Ian Finlay as Referee and Mr Ted Davis from Table Tennis NSW head office as assistant referee. Mrs Jennifer Aduckiewicz assisted on the day.
The Primary School Championship is played in age groupings â€“ Infants, Junior is Years 3 & 4, and Senior is Years 5 & 6. The morning session sees all players involved in a school teamâ€™s round robin with group winners going on to the Challenge Cup Knockout Stage in the afternoon. Gold, silver and bronze medals are presented to winning teams. Students who do not make it through to the Knockout Stage are entered in the Reparcharge singles event with certificates awarded to winners and runner-up in each age division â€“ Infants, Junior and Senior.
This year saw the biggest entry we have had with nearly 200 students representing 15 schools. It was good to see so many parents come to encourage their children play. Some good skills are being developed and the children demonstrated good sportsmanship. I watched some close games and was impressed with the support shown by the teachers. It was also good to see a number of girls holding their own against the boys. Special thanks go to Pauline Zhau who ran the Infants competition where 20 little champions showed off their skills. It was a credit to Mr Finlay that most of the matches finished on time. The future of NSW table tennis is in good hands.
