Matthew Kreymborg claimed the Glenn Tepper Trophy at the Horsham Junior Table Tennis Club championships earlier this month.

The competition was filled with tight, exciting matches.

Kreymborg defeated Lewis Thomas in the final, 11-5, 11-6, 11-2.

Kreymborg's game has developed well, making him a force to contend with.

Not only does he have the shots and the power to go with them, he is able to read and control the play.

He will lead the club's junior side in the shield event to be played at Mount Gambier later this year.

Doubles combinations were pulled out of a hat, with Kreymborg and Thomas and their respective partners reaching the final.

Kreymborg and Sebastion LeRoux defeated Thomas and Alex Baker in five games 11,8, 11-8, 9-11, 4-11, 11-5.

Emmalee Thomas won junior girl champion honours after another five-game showdown.

Thomas defeated Paige Sanders 8-11, 12-10, 4-11, 12-10, 11-9 in a close match that could have gone either way.

In the mini-big bat handicap singles, some players had to use a smaller than normal bat while others used a bat twice the size of a normal one.

Harry Combe really stood out as he made the mini bat perfrom, defeating big bat player Daniel Drum in the final, 13-11, 8-11, 11-5.

In the mini table singles, Trent Sanders defeated Rohan Sanders 11-9, 11-9.
