After much deliberation, Table Tennis England is delighted to announce the winners of our #TableTennisDay competitions.
As part of the July 16, Table Tennis Day celebrations, Table Tennis England launched three competitions designed to challenge creativity and engage players and fans who may not have had access to a table on the day.
The competitions included ‘Best Selfie – take a fun and smiley selfie to show how you took part in Table Tennis Day’; ‘Design a Bat – create your perfect Table Tennis Day bat’; ‘Trick Shot Challenge – show your skills with a bat and ball’ and ‘Spot the Ball – Find the missing ball from our photo from the Senior National Championships’.
The entries were considered by a panel of judges from Table Tennis England, who were highly impressed by the range of creative bat designs, selfies and trick-shots produced.
Caroline Howkins, Children and Young People Manager for Table Tennis England, said: “We had hundreds of entries for the Design a Bat competition and it was fantastic to see so many young people get involved in Table Tennis Day in their schools and clubs. The creativity of the bat designs were excellent which made it really hard to choose only one winner. It was nice to see whole classes getting involved together in the spirit of the day.”
Steve McFadyen, Clubs and Disability Officer for Table Tennis England, said: “It was great to see real club involvement and support in Table Tennis Day. Clubs put on a tremendous effort across the country to come together, have fun and support the day. Well done to our winners and we hope to see more of the same next year!”
**Drumroll please** And the winners are…
