On Tuesday 4th October 2016, The Prescot School entered the KS3 Knowsley Table Tennis Tournament as reigning champions, so the pressure was on from the start to retain their crown. The event took place at All Saints school in Kirkby, with the reward of becoming champions and also representing Knowsley at the Merseyside games later in the academic year all to play for.
The team (Zak, Theo, Karl and Liam) got off to a flying start by beating All Saints ‘A Team’ 3-1 in games, and comfortably securing their path into the final, where they met All Saints ‘B Team’. The boys followed up their impressive start to the competition by sweeping All Saints ‘B Team’ in the final, winning all four games.
With this win, The Prescot School have now won the first two sports tournaments they have entered this year, with the other being the Year 11 Knowsley Basketball Championships.
All the students who took part were a credit to themselves and the school, with a real show of class and sportsmanship throughout the competition. We now wish them luck going forward, as they will represent Knowsley in the Merseyside Table Tennis Championships in the near future.
