On Sunday 27th November, the cadet team of Prithvi Menon, Adam Koszyk and Tor West - Ley represented Westfield TTC in the second round of the National Cadet League at the Birmingham Table Tennis Centre.
They started off their day with a 5-1 win over Birmingham 4, Adam lost to Jaydon Baker, but a broken finger hampered his play; despite the one loss this was a good, solid start.
Next up was Birmingham 3 which proved a competitive game, finishing with a 4-2 win. Prithvi got us off to a strong start with a 3-0 win over Adrian Li; Adam was next up against Gopal Rathore and won in 4 deuce ends. Tor was then unlucky to lose in 4 close ends to Nokulus Lam before Adam and Prithvi extended the lead.
Colebridge C was the next opponent, and this proved another comfortable affair with a 6-1 win.
Our penultimate match of the day was against Colebridge D with all the games being won in 3, leaving the final match against Knighton Park, the other undefeated team. This proved one game too far which we lost 1-5, Prithvi being the only player to be successful. The final placing means the team should then be placed in the top division for the forthcoming matches.
Well done to all players on another successful day! Thanks, again, to their families for their help with transport and support.
