The Sutton & District Table Tennis League junior (under 16 and under 18) championships were held at Rosehill Table Tennis Club and were well supported to provide a packed evening of matches. Both competitions were held in four groups with the group winners progressing to the semi finals.  All the group winners were members of the Wallington Crusaders Table Tennis Club.

In the under 16s semis Mickel Miller beat Gagan Dhanjal 11-1, 11-6, 11-9 whilst the other semi final was more of a tense dramatic match which was finally won by Oscar Williamson beating Richard Pelc 11-13, 11-4, 11-6, 3-11, 12-10. Oscar then put up another battling performance in the final before losing to the strong favourite Surrey No 7 junior Mickel Miller 2-11, 14-12, 4-11, 7-11.

Mickel Miller and Oscar Williamson were to meet again this time in the semi final of the under 18 event but this time Mickel Miller won in straight games 11-5, 11-6,11-6. In the other semi final Michael Ho, the Surrey No 1 (and England top 20 junior player) had a comfortable win 11-1, 11-1, 12-10 against Tom Beales.

The evening culminated in a superb display of table tennis. The match of the night was undoubtedly the under 18 final in which Michael Ho overcame the challenge from Mickel Miller 8-11, 11-8, 11-3, 11-7 to retain his junior crown.
