Jack stars for Banwell

C & C Banwell youngsters impress in their match against Winsc Warriors in the Weston Table Tennis League.

IN Division 2 of the Weston Table Tennis League, the three youngsters of C & C Banwell impressed with their hard work and good attitude in their match against Winsc Warriors.

They were unlucky not to come away with more points. Jack Brent won all three, and despite having some problems with chop and side spin, could be unplayable in a few seasons.

For the first time this season he beat his granddad, Warriors’ Pete Joiner in three. Leo Reid and Katy Groom are becoming good steady players, Katy having some long hard rallies.

Everything came down to the doubles, but a combination of brute force - Cath Smith and deviousness - Dave Parker won it for Warriors 21-18.
