Welsh Primary School Championships

20 primary school teams made the trip to Sport Wales National Centre to take part in the first Welsh Primary Schools Championships since February 2019.

This historic competition has seen some of Wales best players taking part over the years, with this event being one of the first competition for some young primary school children to take part in.

During the day, over 40 primary school children took to the tables and enjoyed a day of competing against other schools from across Wales. Each school team played 8 matches during the day with support and inspiration from some of the Welsh National Squad players who where present to support the young children and provide some guidance thought he day.

School teams from Beaufort Hill, Bishop Childs , Christ the King, Treodyrhiw, Cwmlai, Litchard, Llangan, Pen-y-Fai, Williamstown and Hamadryad all gained valuable experience after having a day full of table tennis, but it was Cwmlai A who came away with the top spot. A pairing of young Oliver Harvey and Dylan Williams managed to win all their games to claim the Welsh Primary School Trophy for their school.

The ‘Team of the Day’ was awarded to Chloe Hopkins and Holly James of Pen-Y-Fai for their fantastic attitude and gamesmanship during the day.

We would like to thank all the schools, teachers and parents who attended for their support for this event, Thank you to the volunteers who made this event a great success, and a big well done to all the young children who took part.
