Table tennis winners 2016  

Yearly round up for 2015/16


This has been another successful season for Nailsworth Phoenix table tennis club in the Stroud table tennis league, winning divisions two and three and finishing as runners up in division four. 

I would like here to concentrate on the efforts of our juniors for that is where our future lies. We entered two teams into the national cadet league (where the players can achieve  national ranking points). Both our teams did well in the first two rounds qualifying for the first division, although struggling in the later rounds they all gained some great experience. It was at the end of the season that they reaped their rewards. In the Stroud league closed finals Alex Horseman won the trophy for the best singles player in division four, beating club mate Charlie Cole in a tense and close final.

More recently, at the Stroud junior closed tournament held on 8th May, the Phoenix boys almost had a clean sweep of the medals. Sam McIvor won the u/13 competition beating club mate Jon Ramsbotham in the final and another club mate Alex Wei in the semi's. Joseph Sheppard won the u/15 competition and was runner up in the u/18 competition. The doubles turned out to be an all Phoenix affair as Connor Ward and Joseph Sheppard narrowly defeated Sam McIvor and Jon Ramsbotham 3-2.
