Tom Jarvis has been named in the England team to compete at the World Schools’ Table Tennis Championships in Israel.

The 15-year-old Skegness Grammar School student will travel to Eilat in April as part of a 15-strong England squad selected by the England Schools Table Tennis Association (ESTTA).

England are fielding two teams – one representing London Academy and the other drawn from the rest of the country.

Jarvis will compete alongside Billy Forster, Alex Ramsden and Alec Ward in the national team.

The London Academy line up is Theodore Achampong, Ryan Barnett, Eren Gozcu and Omar Khassal.

All the England players will also compete in individual events.

The tournament takes place from April 2-8.
