SUIS hosted another successful, student lead Table Tennis Tournament on Saturday 16 March. Students had to arrange the schedule together and umpire each other’s games, meaning it was an activity for the students lead by the students. All students stepped up to the challenge and worked well in collaboration with other schools to make sure we had a successful run tournament.
During the competition NACIS competed in the U13 boys with Baron Jiang and Jason Liu; as well as the boys we also entered 4 girls in the tournament: Apple Wang, Kelly Ji, Tiffany Tao and Kelly Zhou (her first ever competitive tournament) and the U15s boy Tournament with Johnny Yang.
All the students learnt a lot during the competition and had a chance to develop their match play. Johnny came second in got through his U15 pool to enter the championship pool where he came up against some very good competition. A special mention goes to Baron and Apple Wang in the boys U13s tournament. They claimed a 1st and 2nd place with Baron beating Apple 15-13 in a very tense decisive game of the championship pool. We would also like to extend my gratitude Also to the parents who came along to the competition to support all individuals.
On 30 April, our girls will be going back for another tournament where we hope to bring home more success.
