On Sunday 12 th March, the cadet team of Prithvi Menon, Adam Koszyk and Tor West-Ley
represented Westfield TTC in the final round of the National Cadet League at the
Birmingham Table Tennis Centre. Having gained promotion over the first two rounds to the
top division, there was greater challenge.
They started off their day against Colebridge A; although a 6-0 loss, most of the games were
Next up was Colebridge B, which proved a tighter affair, finishing with a 4-2 loss. Prithvi
and Tor won one a piece and three games went to fifth end deciders – so close!
Knighton Park was the next opponent, and this provided the first success of the day with a 4-
2 win. Two wins each for Adam and Prithvi and two very close games for Tor gave the team
a good boost.
Our penultimate match of the day was against Birmingham 1 with Prithvi taking the only win
resulting in a 5-1 loss. Again, all games were hard fought and proved the determined spirit of
our team. We finished the day on a well-earned high with a 4-2 win against Birmingham 2.
All the players have improved immensely over this season and, on another day, the results
could easily have gone our way. It was a pleasure to coach the players over this season.
Thanks, again, to their families for their help with transport and support.
