The sport of Table Tennis is very popular at Westlake Boys’, with over 30 teams that play each Friday evening in the North Shore Secondary Schools’ competition making us the largest Table Tennis school on the North Shore and amongst the largest in New Zealand with over a hundred registered players. Table Tennis is played at ActivZone in Glenfield during Terms 2 and 3 every year.
Last year players from Westlake Boys’ won both the senior and junior individual titles at the National Secondary Schools’ Tournament in Palmerston North, continuing a tradition of high placings in local, regional and national competitions. This year we will again be entering players in both the individual and team sections of these tournaments.
Table Tennis at Westlake Boys’, however, caters successfully for both elite and recreational players and is a sport where students can participate, compete and enjoy whether an experienced player or an enthusiastic beginner as all levels are catered for.
