Players from Cliffedale Chandlers Table Tennis Club formed the Lincolnshire 2nd team that contested the National County Cadet League in Halifax on Saturday.
Benjamin Rigby, Joshua Kettle, Aalhad Kulkarni, Sarah Henderson and Stefania Popa played against other top county players in teams from Cleveland, Durham and Cheshire, as well as the Lincs first team.
Coach Clive Henderson saw real promise as most of the players were gaining their first county caps and, although they lost all four matches, they gained invaluable experience playing against the best cadets from these regions.
The players were on the road again the following day, this time to Wellingborough to take part in the National Cadet League at club level.
Despite the gruelling weekend schedule, Cliffedale Chandlers had one team promoted, one relegated and two remained in their divisions.
Cliffedale Chandlers chairman Darran Leete was very pleased with the continuous development of club players towards county level, in both the Cadet (under-15) and Junior (15+) squads.
The club is always looking for new players. For more info contact Darran on 07702235644.
