George Hazell and James Smith - U19 LSTTA Individual Championships 2018 James Smith - U19 LSTTA Individual Champion 2018

In an outstanding U19 London South Table Tennis Finals yesterday, Whitgift and England players James Smith and George Hazell won through to play each other in the National Qualifying Table Tennis Final.

In a high class field of players the two Whitgift boys put on an outstanding display of Table Tennis which saw Hazell almost taking the title in the fourth game having a match point, only for Smith to fight back and take the game and then win the Championship in the 5th 11 9.

Fellow Whitgift 6th former and part of the school's victorious U19 National champions team, Reiss Vydelingum, also reached the Semi Finals playing superbly only to be beaten by James Smith but will qualify, like his fellow Whitgiftians, for the Jack Petchey Individual Finals later in the season.
