The young cadet team of Leo (7) and Luca (9) Pontone Conor Elston (11) and Jack Jacomb (13) made the trip over to Northfield TTC for Day one for the National Cadet League.
First match of the day was vs Northumbria. With a win each for Leo, Luca and Jack saw a 6-3 loss, However the match could have gone the other way with Jack and Luca both losing tight fifth sets to the number 2.
Next up was Ormesby C a triple win for Luca and Leo and a win for Conor saw a final score of 6-3 to Bishop
Ormesby was again the next opponent but this time the B side.
This turned out to be the match of the day, With young Leo coming back from 2 -1 down to beat Kay 3-2 , Conor and Jack both also beating Kay 3-1. The best match was Jack against Charlotte Weatherby. A tight first set saw Jack take first blood. Charlotte struck back to take a tighter second set 13-11. The next to sets were shared with Jack taking the 3rd and Charlotte the 4th to set up a decider. After some great table tennis Jack took the 5th 11-7. However wasn’t enough for the win with Ormesby just piping the 5-4 scoreline
Last match of the day was VS the hot favourites Northfield A. The strong team were to much for the young Bishop Team but Luca and Jack did take sets of player
A great first day with lots of lessons learnt and lots of great TT
Well done Boys
