ASHWELLTHORPE ATOMS TABLE TENNIS TEAM

Ashwellthorpe Atoms, 

which has members from amongst the players who meet at Ashwellthorpe Village Hall every Monday evening from 8.00 to 9.00 p.m., is our table tennis team in Division 1 of the Wymondham and District Table Tennis League. Our 2016/2017 Winter Season League team was made up by William Cugnoni, Tom Reed, Daniel Watson and the Captain, Scott Morgan.

Ashwellthorpe Atoms joined Division 1 in the 2015/2016 season, with Henry Cugnoni (also from our Monday night club) playing as well as the above four, winning the Summer League. In the following 2015/2016 Winter League season, the Atoms played 18 matches and finished in 5th place out of the ten teams. In the 2016/2017 Winter League season, which has just ended, the Atoms were 4th (as at 1 May 2017) – more matches won, fewer matches lost, and more points scored. They also won this year’s Handicap Cup.

So WELL DONE the Atoms!

You, too, could come along to the Ashwellthorpe Table Tennis Club on Monday evenings – any age or skill welcome. See you there.
