Isabelle tops the table tennis tree
Wallington table tennis hot shot Isabelle Joubeily is looking forward to just one thing after taking top honours in the South London regional finals.
The Wallington High School for Girls pupil won the U16 category of the Jack Petchey Foundation London Schools individual finals. Now Joubeily, 14, only has eyes for the top prize.
“I cannot wait for the final, I have learned so much from my coach and table tennis is such a great sport, it is really competitive” Joubeily said.
“I love meeting new people and learning new skills. “This competition is great because you get to play against people from other schools.” The Jack Petchey London Schools’ table tennis championships are designed to get more young people interested in playing the sport at school for fun and also to compete.
The south London regional final, held at Sutton’s Wilson School on Friday, brought together 52 players from 14 different schools.
The London School’s singles finals will be held on June 21 at the University of East London.
