Trinity News : July 2008
TRINITY TABLE TENNIS NEWS According to the Australian Olympic Committee’s website, table tennis is played competitively by some 40 million people world wide, which makes it, after football, the second most popular sport in the world. Trinity has offered table tennis as a Year 12 sport since last summer season and it has been very well received by the boys. Some 25 Year 12 students assemble three times a week in the Old Gym to enjoy some fierce competition around our six green tables. It is a fast game which, in order to be played successfully, requires a lot of skill, good technique and great reaction. It is amazing to see both the speed to which the little white balls can be accelerated and the spin which can make the balls totally unpredictable. We also have provided for non-Year 12s social games on Tuesdays and Fridays. Some of the keenest players recently had the opportunity to compete at the NSW Schoolboys’ Championships at Olympic Park. There were 87 teams of two players each mainly from Sydney, and all of our teams played at least two pool games, with three of our eight teams moving into the second round. All three teams won their knockout games and reached the third round. This round was then survived by only one team, Nicholas Lai (12Sc) and Cassian Ho (12Sc), who beat a team from Westfield Sports High. They then played well in their quarter finals match but had to concede defeat against more skilled and experienced players from Kingsgrove High School. It was a fantastic day and some excellent table tennis was played.
