12 May Coláiste Éanna Table Tennis 2015-2016.
This was a good year for table tennis in the school. We had over 50 players register to play in September.
Our under 13 A team was very successful, winning the under 13 Division 1 league title narrowly beating Terenure College.
The team was Ben McCarthy, Ben Jones, Daniel Furlong, Alex Singeorzan and Mark Grundy. The boys won a play-off against, again, Terenure College to represent both Colaiste Eanna and Leinster at the All Ireland Schools Finals held at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght. Josh Corcoran and David Gannon joined the team as it expanded to 7 players for this competition.
The lads were beaten by Ulster,who went on to win the competition , 5-2 in the semi-finals . We won the 3rd place play off beating Munster 5-0. This is a great achievement for these players who have great potential for the future.
Our under 15 team did very well in reaching the Semi Finals of the Leinster Schools Cup Finals played in UCD. They were knocked out by a strong Pres Carlow team which featured many top ranked players. Our team was Ciaran O’Neill, James Clarke, Ciaran O’Reilly, Ben McCarthy, Cormac MacAree and Owen Ryan .
But it’s not all about competition, Table tennis is all about having fun, not just winning titles and we have a group of beginners and social players who all enjoy playing as much as our cup and medal winners.
Thanks to Tibor for coaching and Mr O’Gorman for managing throughout the year
