Every single child played brilliantly and should be extremely proud of themselves. 

After the first round 7 out of 10 of our players made it through to the next round. Those who missed out were unfortunate to have been placed in a group against extremely tough competition from Greatwood


Will Walker, Ruby Tague and Jessica Broster progressed into the semi-finals and what a performance they put in. There were some extremely tense moments in all their games and the result could've gone either way. Jessica Broster progressed into the final of the girls under 11 and brought the runners-up trophy back to Torrisholme! 


An outstanding display from every single member of the Torrisholme team. You should be extremely proud of yourselves, well done.

Next week, Wednesday (23rd march) table tennis is only for the Y5 children who usually attend on a Wednesday.

Well done to Felix Waller, Will Walker, Sam Hayward and Jamie Holmes who beat Great Wood Y4 team 7-1 last night. This was an encouraging performance and hopefully the boys will keep practising over the summer!
Well done to Matthew Westworth who won the Torrisholem table tennis championships with victory over Felix Waller in the final. He then went on to inflict a first defeat on Mr Gittins! We shall certainly miss Matthew next year!
There are still places left in the school table tennis championships to be played at Torrisholme School - please return your letters asap!
Well done to Toby Illingworth, Felix Waller, Jamie Holmes, Hayden Mills, Josh Collins and Lexie Ball (on debut), who played really well in losing a close match to Great Wood girls A team.

Report from Josh

Our winning team!



Torrisholme’s great table tennis adventure came to an end at Grantham with 3 narrow defeats against some of the country’s best young players in the last 16 of the National tournament.

An exciting first match against Bradford Grammar School saw Torrisholme on the end of 3 five set defeats. Lucas, Matthew and Will each won a match, leading to a 5-3 defeat.

Against Kingston-Upon-Hull, Torrisholme expected a heavy defeat. However, great performances from all the boys, especially Lucas and Matthew who won 2 and 1 match respectively, saw Torrisholme again suffer a 5-3 defeat.

In the last match, with the boys naturally exhibiting signs of tiredness, Lucas and Matthew were again victorious in a 6-2 defeat. Lucas left the tournament as the strongest number 4 player, having defeated the other three number 4s, as well as a number 3, on his way to a record of: played 6, won 4. Matthew won 3 of his matches, Will won 1 and Bradley, although he battled hard, didn’t manage to record a victory.

All the boys played with talent, spirit and sportsmanship and can be extremely proud of their efforts this year.



An unbelievably tense morning’s table tennis in Blackburn ended with Torrisholme Primary School being crowned Lancashire School’s Champions for the very first time.

The team of Lucas Pinington, Matthew Westworth, Bradley Wilkinson and Will Silverwood travelled to Blackburn more in hope than expectation, knowing that great rivals Greatwood would need to be beaten for the first time ever.

In the first match, against Greatwood B, all players performed brilliantly with an 8-0 victory setting up the day nicely. The four boys knew the big test was yet to come.
Against Greatwood A, a great start saw both Will and Bradley defeat their opposite numbers, both of whom they lost to the last time out. Will took apart the Greatwood number 1 with a great display of attacking hitting. Bradley followed suit as his mighty forehand was too much for the Greatwood number 2.

Lucas played a great game against the Greatwood number 3 and was unlucky to lose it in 3 tight sets. The game of the morning so far saw Matthew win a ding-dong battle 11-9 in the fifth set against the Greatwood 4, leaving Torrisholme 3-1 up after the first round of matches.

Will followed this with a tight win against Greatwood 3, leaving Torrisholme just one game from victory. Bradley lost an incredible game against Greatwood 1, leaving the score 4-2 going into the last two games. Pressure was on Lucas as Matthew was definitely the underdog against Finn, the Greatwood 2. Lucas played really well and was very unlucky to lose the second set incredibly 18-16.

Meanwhile, on the other table, Matthew had stormed into a 2-0 lead, only for Finn to mount a comeback. Matthew kept his nerve and converted his 3rd match point to send the Torrisholme faithful into raptures. Lucas battled hard to the end and was again unlucky to lose.

A 5-3 victory for the boys in blue sees them progress to the Northern finals on January 18th. What a proud day for all involved!!
