DAISH STARS FOR COUNTY AT JUNIOR NATIONALS

Two New Forest youngsters represented Hampshire at the National County Junior Table Tennis Championships in Northamptonshire over the weekend of 8th-9th October. The Hampshire Under 18 team of five included New Milton TTC’s Matthew Daish and Brockenhurst’s Katie Holt who plays her club matches for Waterside TTC.

The stand-out player for Hampshire was 15 year old Daish (pictured) with 10 wins from 14 matches including a victory over the England U18 number 9 Harry Dai.

The Hampshire side had a bad start to the tournament but rallied with victories over high-flying Sussex, Devon and last year’s champions Lancashire to just hang on to retain its position in the Premier Division next season. Yorkshire were the newly crowned champions, with Sussex finishing as runners-up.
