The Burnside High School Mixed A team won the Canterbury Secondary Schools' Team Championships at Table Tennis Stadium on Sunday 16 June.

The winning team were, from left:
Sang-Yong Park, Jiayi Zhou and Avon Liu.

They beat the Burnside High School Boys team in the final game. The Boys team were: Vedang Gaikwad, Dan Jefferies and Zak McKellar. The Mixed A team and Boys team will both be attending the NZ Secondary Schools' Championships in Tauranga in September this year.

Congratulations to Jiayi Zhou on her recent success at the Oceania Cup in Bora Bora in May. Jiayi was selected in the NZU18 Table Tennis team, who played Australia, Fiji and Tahiti in this tournament, and Jiayi placed third for her first-ever time at this tournament. Jiayi has only just turned 16, so playing against mainly 18 year olds, she did very well.
