BRENT'S table tennis teams, made up from boys and girls from Wembley High Technology College, and managed by Andrew Rushton, claimed gold and bronze in theLondon Youth Games, held in Redbridge.
The girls' team of Sushmita Limbu and Dipa Tamung had straight 5-0 wins in the first group stage against Waltham Forest, Camden and Redbridge. In the second group stage they only needed to play their first singles games and the doubles game against Barnet to win 3-0, and then against Tower Hamlets to win 3-1, to put them into the final. In the final they met Hillingdon and, after some close games, a fantastic team effort in the doubles saw Brent to a 3-1 win - and the gold.
Brent boys beat Lambeth 5-0, Richmond 4-1 and Sutton 4-1 in their first group stage, then won close games with Newham and Barking and Dagenham in the second group stage.
But a defeat in their final game against Barnet left them second in their group and having to play off for third place overall against Ealing, which they won, to claim the bronze medals.
The Brent team was: Renekel Mills, Dritan Sadiku, Damilola Thomas, Folufo Thomas.
Brent's trampolining team, managed by Diane Moriarty, did well to finish seventh overall in their event - a fantastic achievement.
The team included Kelly Booth, Sharna Henry, Marayo Lasekan and Sabrina Ferrier.
In the tennis competition, Brent had a great start against Lambeth, Middlesex number one Zack
Evenden winning the boys' singles 6-0, Leanne Yip Heung Win winning the girls' singles with the same score and the mixed pair of Vanisha Varsani and Jordan Angus winning 6-2.
The team went on to another great win over one of top boroughs, Hillingdon, who they also beat over-all 2-1.
The most difficult game was against Havering and, although Zack Evenden had another great win in the boys' singles, Brent were just beaten 2-1 overall.
The final match against Merton saw Brent secure a fantastic 3-0 win, but it was not enough to prevent Havering going through to the finals as group winners.
The Brent team was managed by Elaina Forland and Rose Yip Heung Win.
