Ulster Schools’ Individual Table Tennis Championships

Seven table tennis players from Bangor Grammar were entered into the Ulster Schools’ Individual Table Tennis Championships which were held on 5th April at Lisburn Racquets Club. Elite players attended from all parts of Northern Ireland, Monaghan and Cavan. The entry being the highest since the competition started. Some age groups having over 60 individuals playing. The high turnout resulted in the competition overrunning by two hours.

At all age groups our pupils played exceptional table tennis. Harry McCracken and Adam Simmonite both reached the quarter finals of the Under 14 age group, Joel  Smith came third in the Under 12s. John Ewing, Ross Fulton and Max Skelton all played in the finals, coming second in Ulster in the Under 16, 14 and 12 age groups respectively and finally, James Skelton narrowly defeated his brother to win the Ulster Under 12 competition.

Congratulations to all who played and represented our school in this prestigious competition. They showed real determination and skill and have put Bangor Grammar firmly at the forefront of Ulster Schools’ Table Tennis.
