Anupam Tripathi, a Year 7 boy at Bolton School, represented Greater Manchester Schools in the recent Butterfly Schools' National Individual (U13 Boys) Table Tennis Championships held at Aldersley Leisure Village, Wolverhampton.
Over 350 players representing 50 counties gathered on the day and twelve year old Anupam won two out of his three group matches. Anupam performed well on the day, winning one of his matches 3-1, after being down 1-0 in the first game, and winning another match in straight sets (3-0) against a player from Bedfordshire. Both the opponents that he overcame were higher ranked than him.
Anupam started playing table tennis six years ago and trains at Preston and Garstang Table Tennis Clubs. At his old school, St Pius Preparatory School in Preston, he used to play in Lancashire competitions and came second twice and third once in the county. In 2015-2016 he was part of the Preston Table Tennnis team that won the Cadets’ Tournament and was runner-up in the same competition in 2016-2017. He has also recently helped umpire the national English Table Tennis Team match against Slovakia, held in Preston. Anupam also plays for the School football and cricket teams.
