Bankfields Primary School, with six youngsters who started their table tennis journey with TT Kidz, are our winners of the media contest after a superb run to the Butterfly National Schools Team Finals by the girls’ and boys’ teams. boys who got local TV and radio coverage.

The school entered the finals weekend last month and finished as the fourth-best school in the nation in both categories.

Their exploits to reach the final were covered by the local BBC newscast programme, as well as Zetland FM radio station (as pictured above).

Teams and individuals playing in Butterfly National Schools competitions are challenged to gain media coverage in their area, and the judges decided that Bankfields got the most impressive coverage. They win a TeesSport voucher.
