Junior British League in Derby (Sep 2017)  

Miller shines at Junior British League

The Jersey Academy, sponsored by the ONE FOUNDATION for the thirdJBL Jersey team with coaches season, played in the first of two legs of the Junior British League table tennis competition last weekend at the Derby Arena, the ‘Wembley of Table Tennis’. In their first year, the team had qualified and were then promoted from Division 4 to Division 3 and at the end of the second season were promoted again to Division 2. Playing in their highest division so far and with a young team in what is an U18 competition, the Jersey Academy had their work cut out. The players were inspirationally led by 15 year old skipper Luc Miller, CI U21 open and U15 boys champion who made his Island Games debut for Jersey in Gotland in the summer and David Quinn (14) a seasoned campaigner from the previous 2 JBL seasons. Alfie Sutherland (13) had only competed once before in the JBL and rookie Leon Pierre (12), CI U13 boys champion completed the team.

On the Saturday Miller led by example batting away all his opponents in the team’s 3 matches (winning all his 6 individual matches) against XLNT Draycott, Cardiff CCTC, and Ormsby but it was not enough to stop the Jersey Academy succumbing 2-4 to each team. Quinn had a couple of close encounters, losing 2-3 and 1-3 to Ormsby players and Pierre and Sutherland both bagged some games but they found the going tough in Division 2.

JBL Jersey teamOn the Sunday Miller, now suffering from tonsillitis, heroically played on, but agonisingly lost out in three of his matches 2-3 (9-11 in the fifth).  Pierre found his fluent form, playing his best table tennis of the weekend and he took the only scalp for the Jersey Academy against Colebridge winning 3-0 but Jersey Academy lost the match 1-5. This strong performance earned him a place in the team for the final match against Ashford but again the team went down 1-5, with Miller notching the only victory. Sutherland also produced some great table tennis in the last match as his confidence grew over the weekend.

JTTA Coach Martin Tupper said, “It was a fantastic weekend of table tennis. The standard in Division 2 is much more challenging and it was a baptism of fire so the players have been left in no doubt about the training they will need to put in before the second leg in January”.

JTTA President, Eileen Lucas said, “There were great performances all round from our young team and we’re very grateful for the sponsorship of the One Foundation to enable the boys to compete at this level and inspire our other juniors.”

Junior British League - Derby

(10 - 11 February, 2018)


The Jersey Academy, sponsored by the ONE FOUNDATION, travelled to Derby last weekend to compete in the second leg of Division 2B of the Junior British League. The young team found the going tough against challenging opposition from all over England, dropping their first match on Saturday to League runners-up Draycott 1-5, with only 16 year old Victoria College student, Luc Miller clinching 1 singles match. Miller again registered the only 2 wins against second opponent up, Ashford, both 11-9 in the fifth. Alfie Sutherland, runner-up in the recent Secondary School Boys team tournament in Jersey, was unwell over the weekend but gallantly took both his opponents to 4 games. League winners Cardiff also proved too strong but the Jersey Academy avoided a total whitewash with Miller chalking up a win.

Sunday dawned with Jersey Academy’s penultimate match, against Colebridge. Miller got the team off to a flying start scoring the first singles win 11-8 in the fifth game. Leon Pierre, the youngest team member and CI U13 boys champion, continued the good work, landing the third match 3-1 against Marcus Holba, giving the Academy a 2-1 lead. Miller then faced up to Samuel Wilson, ranked 23 England Junior and in the best match of the weekend emerged 3-2 winner, 11-8 in the fifth. With the Jersey Academy now 3-2 up David Quinn was next in the queue. Playing his best table tennis of this leg, he too swept past Holba 3-1, giving Jersey Academy a 4-2 victory to register their first points on the table. In the final match against Ormesby Quinn had an opportunity to clinch the first game but went down 2-3, agonisingly 11-8 in the fifth. Despite Miller bagging his two matches, the Jersey Academy lost out 2-4 to Ormesby.

Despite Miller bagging his two matches, the Jersey Academy lost out 2-4 to Ormesby.

Jersey Academy coach, Martin Tupper said “Luc was the stand-out performer for the team, finishing third in the individual averages as he won 8 of his 10 matches over the weekend with several going to 5 games. It was a fantastic achievement for Luc and he beat 3 juniors ranked in the top 50 in England with the consistency we saw at the Gotland Island Games. When Luc was supported by his team mates it showed that the Jersey Academy can compete at this level. They beat Colebridge 4-2, who finished third in the league. David, Leon and Alfie all struggled a bit but I am sure they will have found it a great experience and excellent preparation for the forthcoming Island Championships, the Jersey Open at Easter and the Inter Insulars over the next 2 months.

Hugo Tupper, former CI Men’s champion, and his brother Max assisted in coaching the team on the Saturday and they were supported by Luke Greenfield, a Jersey Academy Junior British League player for the past 2 seasons.  Both Hugo and Luke have been playing for their respective university teams this year, Nottingham Trent and Loughborough.

Secondary School Boys Tournament (3 February, 2018)

Last weekend saw the second annual secondary school boys’ table tennis event at the Geoff Reed Table Tennis Centre. Most of the Island’s schools were represented with a high standard of play, focus and enthusiasm from all players. Seasoned juniors from the JTTA Junior Academy were put to the test by new faces and talented players over 3 hours of nearly non-stop table tennis. The tournament favourites, Tanguy Billet-Masters and Thomas Cotillard from Victoria College, clinched the winning trophy after a thrilling 3-2 victory over the Les Quennevais 1 team of Junior British League team player Alfie Sutherland and his team mate, Noah Risby. Sutherland won both his singles but lost out in the doubles 11-13 in the deciding match. Max and Declan Roche of Le Rocquier finished third, having pushed Les Quennevais 1 and Victoria College all the way. Max Roche beat both the Victoria College players but lost out 2-3 in the match overall. In fourth place, there was a 3-way tie between two teams from Hautlieu and the Kidman brothers from De La Salle.

Tournament organiser Audrey Tupper said, “There’s a lot of untapped talent in Island schools and we were thrilled with the standard of play and sportsmanship. The boys enjoyed the event and we hope that some of them will come back and try out our beginners’ sessions to further develop their technique.”

Training sessions for beginners run on Saturdays and Sundays (12.00-1.30pm) for those who would like to improve their game.

Secondary Schools Girls Tournament (Nov 2017)  

JCG team 1 winnersLast weekend saw the fourth secondary school girls table tennis event at the Geoff Reed Table Tennis Centre. Teams from Beaulieu, Jersey College for Girls and Les Quennevais played nearly 3 hours of non-stop table tennis in a round robin format.

Pia Gurner, a member of the JTTA Junior Academy who represented Jersey in June's Intertrust Senior Schools International, was partnered by Kathryn Silcock in JCG Team 2 but they were agonisingly pipped into runner-up position by their older JCG colleagues, Natasha Baluschi and Zara Packman who clinched the winners' trophies yet again.

Beaulieu teams 1, 2 & 3The Beaulieu 2 team of Rachel Alley and Chloe Lagadu, who were narrowly pushed into third place by losing 2-3 to JCG 2, are two names to watch for the future. There was little to separate the other teams (two more from each of Beaulieu and three from Les Quennevais) and referee Martin Tupper had to negotiate a three way tie before settling the final positions. Mrs Fitzmaurice from Beaulieu was delighted with the performance of her teams and Mr Le Feuvre from Les Quennevais described the attitude of their players as "troopers." The JTTA President, Eileen Lucas, presented the trophies and certificates.

Audrey Tupper, who organised the event said, "There is wonderful work being done for girls table tennis now, which is really exciting with a lot of untapped talent lurking out there. We werLes Quennevais teams 1, 2 & 3e thrilled with the standard of play, focus and enthusiasm from all the players. After 3 hours the girls had really got their eye in and were hitting the ball very well but the main aim of the event was for them to enjoy playing."

Training sessions for beginners run on Saturdays and Sundays (12.00-1.30pm) for those who would like to improve their game.
