Thursday, March 2, 2017

Skegness Grammar School student and England under-18 Table Tennis International, Tom Jarvis, will be competing in the English National Table Tennis Championships this weekend.

Tom currently lives in Sweden and plays for professional tennis club Halmstad whilst studying for his A Level’s at Skegness Grammar.

The athlete, who is the current national under-21 champion, has arrived back in the UK today in preparation for the competition held at the David Ross Sports Village in Nottingham.

He was previously selected as a travelling reserve for Team GB during the 2016 Olympics in Rio due to his outstanding talent and attitude.

Charles Read Table Tennis Scholar, Darcie Proud, will also be competing in the championships.

The 13-year-old has recently returned from the Safir International Table Tennis Tournament, where she celebrated her best win against Swedish International player Erika Font.

Both athletes will train together throughout today at Charles Read Academy.
