Report from Colin Philip

2nd Place

On Easter Sunday, 31 March, the Lanarkshire Under 13 Team took part in the Lothian Inter County Team Competition that was held in Meadowmill Sports Centre, Tranent.

There were 8 teams competing split into two pools of four.  Lanarkshire, Yorkshire, Borders and Lothian B were in one pool and Lothian A, Northumberland, North East and Isle of Man in the other.

Our Team was made up of 4 girls and 4 boys - with matches consisting of 1 boys singles, 1 girls singles, 2 boys doubles, 2 girls doubles and 1 mixed doubles.


Having beaten quite easily Lothian B and the Borders, unfortunately Yorkshire was just too strong for our young team.  As a result we finished our pool in 2nd place.


We then played Lothian A, the winners of the other pool in the semi-final and despite a valiant attempt, were unfortunately well beaten by a much stronger and experienced team.  That left us to play Northumberland (who had also lost their semi final) for the 3rd and 4th spot.  A convincing 5-2 victory for the Lanarkshire team secured the bronze medal position.  A fantastic result.

I think the highlight of the event was watching the players’ faces just before they picked up their 3rd place medals.  Colin presented them all with an Easter egg (donated by LASBA) as a thank you for agreeing to play on Easter Sunday.  The smiles on their wee faces was worth every penny spent on the eggs.  Just a shame that LASBA couldn’t stretch its budget to buy an egg for Colin ……
