Racket sport champs from NPTC Group’s Newtown campus served up success at the recent Welsh Colleges of Sport Championships held at Glyndŵr University, Wrexham.
 
It was game, set and match when the Sport and Public Services students returned triumphantly to Newtown with a haul of Gold and silverware.

Francesca Board took Gold in the women’s singles table tennis competition as well as winning Bronze in the women’s badminton.  Sam Mumford won Gold in the men’s singles table tennis after a close battle against fellow student Jack Hutchison.

Sasha Jones, Francesca Board, Olivia Sofianos and Zoe Pritchard all travelled up to Glyndŵr for the women’s singles badminton competition, but it was Zoe Pritchard who took home the Silver.

Both Michael Tully and Emrys Powell competed in the men’s single badminton competition with Emrys achieving Bronze.

It was a tough men’s squash competition with Johnny Northrop, Harry Reakes along with Charlie Leah all competing, but after an amazing performance, all returned empty handed.

Ciaran Wheeldon, Sport and Public Services lecturer, was very impressed with the student’s performances.

He said: “Over the last 4-5 weeks, the students have worked hard in their practical sessions, focusing on singles and doubles tactics play. On the day of the competition, all three sports were competed at an exceptionally high standard.”
