Once underway the matches were highly competitive and competitors also provided umpiring during matches to support their fellow participants. The format used mirrored that used by the English Schools Table Tennis Association in their competitions, ensuring that all players had the opportunity to play in several matches during the afternoon.

Congratulations to Raines Foundation, who triumphed in all of the age categories! Bishop Challoner finished runners up in the Under 13 Girls, St Paul’s Way in the Under 13 Boys and George Green’s in the Under 15 Boys and Girls.
