6 young table tennis players from Bishop Auckland Table Tennis Club have qualified at the regional qualifiers, and will now represent the North East in team and single events, at the inter-regional national finals in early June at Kettering.

The first to qualify was Emma Smith in the under 15 girls, followed by Amy Mold in the u13 girls. The u13 boys also saw Luke Mitchell successfully qualify. Amy’s younger brother Ben also joins the team, as part of the u11 squad alongside teammate Ashton Tallentire and u11 girl Charlotte Higgins.
