Brilliant Jake flying up the British rankings in table tennis career
A high-flying Priory Community School student in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, played outstanding to win a match playing against adult competition for the first time – shooting up to 151 in the British rankings.
Jake Tucker, Year 10, won in the Bristol League where he came up against an adult opponent.
Neville Coles, Executive Principal of The Priory Learning Trust, said: “I’m a massive fan of Matthew Syed who became the best in Britain in the sport through playing more than 10,000 hours and with sheer determination and belief. With dedication and hard work Jake could go the same way.”
