Table Tennis and Gymnastics Update January 2017
Table Tennis Winners
I am delighted to report that both our U11 girls’ team and U 11 boys’ team won the National Zone Finals on Saturday at Birmingham. They qualify for the National Regional Finals on Sunday 5th March
Unbeaten in their matches, as Bucks county champions themselves, Chalfont St Peter CE Academy overwhelmed the county champion teams from Birmingham, Worcestershire, Warwickshire and also the runners up from Buckinghamshire.
Overcoming some very strong opposition, the Chalfont St Peter players performed with outstanding play and great tenacity to win their matches throughout the day.
Girls: Emily Harper, Cerys Skyrne Davies, Rachel Iles, Ella and Sophie Culver.
Boys: Luca Mailey, Jack Mailey, Nick Carter, Dexter Dalston and Thomas Brown.
I would like to thank the parents for their transport and support during the day and to our two very able coaches John and son, Joseph Underwood for their enthusiasm and expert tactical advice during the day.
Well done the Academy!
Southern Region Gymnastic Champions!
Chalfont St Peter CE Academy’s mixed team won the Milano Southern Region Championships on Sunday. Performing their vault, floor routines and group sequence with excellence, the mixed team qualify for the National Finals in Stoke on Trent on Saturday 11th March.
Congratulations to Isiah Samuel, Verity Matthews and Milly Metcalfe.
Our boys’ team performed brilliantly on the floor and vault but had a slight mishap in the group sequence relegating the team from gold to bronze medallists. Our girls’ team performed really well against a large number of very strong teams but were squeezed into 4th place.
I would like to congratulate all of our gymnasts for their performances and our parents and their relations for their wonderful support and look forward to our next competition - the Southern Region Floor and Vault Championships in February.
