National Junior League Results – 25th Nov 2017

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 2 of the National Junior League (Under 18’s) on Saturday November 25th, 2017.

Ashford A – Division 1

Team: Dominic Lavender, Artur Bose, Ayush Buche

The A team started the day facing the league leaders Crusaders A who had lost just 1 of 27 matches on Day 1 – so this was a tough challenge.

Artur (vs Angus Norman) and Ayush (vs Jon Vai Chung) both took their opening matches to 5 sets but couldn’t quite get the result.

Ayush did beat Angus in the last game giving a 1-8 scoreline.

Next up was a bottom of the table clash against Crusaders C. A 7-2 win for us meant they were relegated and we remained in Div 1 – finishing in 5th place.

The final session was another 1-8 result – this time against Cippenham A.

Ashford B – Division 2

Team: Rahul Shah, Marvin Tchwangwa, Amit Bose

Having played the top three teams last time out, this time there were two wins vs Warren Spring B (5-4) and St Albans (7-2).

Rahul led the way with 5 out of 6 wins.

The final session was a repeat of the opening match on Day 1, a 1-8 loss to Crusaders D.

The above results meant a 4th place finish.

Ashford C – Division 4

Team: Matt Palmer, Ryan Gibbard, Joseph Jafari

Comfortable wins against Chiltern E (8-1) and Chiltern F (9-0) finished off a good round of matches and secured promotion to Division 3.

The first match at the higher level was a very close (4-5) loss to Cippenham B.


Next and third day is Saturday 27th January.
