A PUPIL at Queen Mary’s College has performed well at The School Games National Final Table Tennis competition.

Amy Blagbrough took part in the competition that took place at Loughborough University between Thursday, August 31 and Sunday, September 3.

Amy performed very strongly and finished in 8th place, she said: “I didn’t have a great start but I’ve learnt so much and I’ll improve as I go forward.

“I loved the atmosphere and having everything around you, like all the athletes staying in the Athletes Village.”

The School Games are an integrated multi-sport event for the UK’s most talented school-age athletes, with around 1,600 athletes competing across 12 sports, seven of which included disability disciplines.

The competition is considered a springboard for future athletes, with Sprinters Adam Gemili and Dina Asher-Smith and swimmer Ellie Simmonds having previously taken part in this competition.

The event was supported by National Lottery funding from Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sports Trust.
