Season Winding Down

2024 NL Closed

The weather is getting nice and as the season winds down many clubs are in the final few weeks of play. The final NLTTA sanctioned tournament in which to earn Team NL selection points, the NL Closed, was held in late March. It was an excellent turnout and it was easy to notice the improvement in the Junior players throughout the season. We can't wait till next season to see what they bring to the table!! A big shout out to all the coaches for their expertise and commitment throughout the season. Also we would like thank everyone who helped us out throughout the season, your volunteerism is greatly appreciated.


School Sports - Table Tennis


The weekend of March 22-23 Avondale was the spot to be for table tennis action in the province with Roncalli Central High hosting the School Sports Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Table Tennis Championships. The action packed tournament crowned champions in a team event as well as in five individual events.


In the Team event, Glovertown Academy and Roncalli Central High met in the final with Glovertown Academy capturing the Gold. The Individual component of the tournament took place after the team event and produced some exciting matches. Divine Aseo of Holy Heart High captured gold in Girl Singles and Mixed Doubles while Peter Quinlan of Roncalli Central High capped off his SSNL table tennis competition by defending his Boys Singles crown which was his third consecutive Gold in Boys Singles.


Congratulations to all on an excellent performance.
