In order to reach the finals, the girls won their regional competition, beating Blessed Trinity and Sir John Thursby.

In the final, the girls competed against nine other schools who had all won their regional competitions.

The standard of table tennis on the day was extremely high, and the girls competed very well, considering they are relatively new to the sport.
