National Junior League Results – 24th Feb 2018

The National Junior League (NJL) is a Table Tennis England competition aimed at grass root players (Under 18) looking to experience a competition early on in their career. It bridges what was a large gap from beginner to the Junior British League.

Last season 180 teams played in 15 centres all over the country on 4 days.

Ashford has 3 teams playing in NJL 2017-18 (-1 on 2016-17) across 3 divisions.

Our matches are played at Cippenham TTC in Slough on:

  • October 14th 2017
  • November 25th 2017
  • January 27th 2018
  • February 24th 2018

Teams from Ashford competed in Day 4 of the National Junior League (Under 18’s) on Saturday February 24th, 2018.

Ashford A – Division 1

Team: Dominic Lavender, Amol Apte, Ayush Buche, Artur Bose

The first match of the day was a 5-1 win against Hillingdon.

This was followed by a close local clash against Ashford B. The match went to form with the A team winning 4-2. However Rahul won both his games for the B team and Marvin took both Artur and Amol to 5 sets and was unlucky not to secure at least a draw overall.

From then on the team only lost 2 matches and comfortably won the division and with it 7th place medals.

The scores were Cruaders D 6-0, St Albans 4-2, Chiltern C 6-0.
