What a fantastic month I have just had. It started with winning the Edinburgh and Lothians Premier Table Tennis League. I play in a team of 3 and this is the 1st time that Murrayfield the club I play for has win the title in over 9 years. This is a great achievement as the team we beat were the current holders and reigned supreme for the 9 year period!!!!
I am part of the Future Stars programme which is run by Falkirk Council who’s aim is to inspire primary children to participate in sport and adopt good exercise and eating habits at a young age. Part of this is that I am invited to local schools to speak to the children and share with them my success and demonstrate my table tennis skills which hopefully encourages them to try the sport. Two weeks ago I was invited to Bainsford Primary and talked to the children about my International and National achievements answering their questions. We played table tennis and the children seemed to have fun trying another sport.
Last weekend I travelled to Largs for our National Interleague Competition where I played in a team with my Edinburgh team mates. We were entered in the Senior category and ended up winning the tournament. We are the youngest team to win the senior Men category with an average age of 14.
My next competition is the UK School Games which is in May. I am training and studying hard as my Standard Grades start at the end of April and need to balance both so that I can do my best in the competition and in my exams.
