The Jack Petchey London Schools’ Championships

The Jack Petchey Schools’ Championships is a prestigious event aimed at increasing participation and awareness of table tennis in Schools in London and Essex.

There are two events – Individual and Team Championships – which are open to boys and girls at U11, 13, 16 & 19 age groups. The Championships begin with regional qualifiers held across London, where those who finish first in the team event and first, second, third and fourth in the individual, qualify for the finals.

We aim to encourage more participants each year, ensuring that EVERY school in London and Essex has the opportunity to attend a county qualifier.

The organisation of these competitions is based on six Jack Petchey Areas – North London, East London, South London, West London, Central London and Essex. There is a County Secretary in each of these areas, who run the two qualifier competitions.

The team qualifiers run in October or November, with the team finals held in January. The winning teams from the finals in each age group go forward to the relevant regional finals of the Butterfly Schools Team Championships, and can qualify from there for the national finals.

The individual qualifiers are held in January and February. Anyone finishing first in a qualifying event goes through to the Jack Petchey individual finals in April and is also eligible to compete at the Butterfly Schools Individual Championships finals.

Please find the information relating to qualifiers below and the contacts for the competitions below the table.
