Manor High has been enjoying success with its Table Tennis teams in recent competitions against local schools. Teams from Year 6 and Year 9 have been competiting in the Oadby & Wigston table tennis competition.
Before half term Mr Burbidge took two Year 6 teams (8 students) to South Wigston High School for the Year 6 Oadby & Wigston table tennis competition. The two teams won all of their games which meant they met each other in the final. Manor A team beat the Manor B team, which meant Manor A lifted the trophy. However, both teams will be representing Oadby & Wigston in the next round on Tuesday 1 November at Leicester Grammar School. Manor High have won this competition for the fourth year running.
Year 7 and Year 9
On Thursday 27 October three Year 7 teams and two Year 9 teams (totalling 19 students) travelled to South Wigston High School for the Under 13’s and Under 16’s Oadby & Wigston Table Tennis competitions. The Year 7’s were playing students a year older, which meant it was going to be even more difficult. We had three teams (A, B and C) who competed and the final standings were: 1st: Manor A, 2nd: Manor B and 3rd: Manor C. Mr Burbidge was very happy for the boys as they all played to a very high standard. The Manor A team were crowned Oadby & Wigston Champions and will progress to the county finals on Wednesday 16 November at Judgemeadow Community College. Manor High have won this competition two years running.
For the Under 16s competition we had two Year 9 teams playing against Year 11 students. Our A team came joint first with South Wigston and the match between the two schools finished in a draw, which meant they had to count up all the points from the games played between all the players. Manor A team scored more points overall, which meant they were also crowned Oadby & Wigston Champions and will progress to the County finals on Monday 14 November at Judgemeadow Community College.
As you can probably tell we are very pleased from all the success, Mr Burbidge said, "The standard of players is getting better each year and Manor High now has a growing reputation with successful table tennis teams each year. Let’s see how far we can get this year!"
Well done everyone involved.
