Team CCCG Sport win netball, table tennis and badminton competitions at AOC Sport London Regional Championship

This year has seen some truly remarkable achievements from the Team CCCG Sports Academy, and earlier this month saw another hugely successful day of competition.

Following on from the huge success of the Group’s football and basketball teams winning regional championships, in a thrilling showcase of skill and determination, Team CCCG Sport has once again emerged victorious as the AOC Sport London Regional Champions this time in netball, table tennis, and badminton. The action-packed event unfolded at Redbridge Sports Centre in Ilford on 13 December.


Representing the Group was our netball team which was a combination of female students from all of our CCCG colleges. The team was eager to retain their regional champions title which they won in 2022 and to secure their spot in the upcoming AOC Sport National Championships scheduled for 19th April 2024, in Nottingham. The team performed exceptionally well, and it was clear to see that all the hard work and additional hours of netball training had paid dividends in winning the tournament by winning every game.

Our head netball Coach Yamini Bist was delighted with the result, saying: ‘I am extremely proud of the team, and looking forward to going back to the national championships for a second year in a row.’ It cannot be understated the achievements of this team. Two years ago, there was no netball at all being played across any of the CCCG colleges. Now we have an established netball academy and two successive regional championships trophies.

Table Tennis

The day however did not just belong to netball. Team CCCG was also victorious in the table tennis event. The college had several learners who competed in the men’s table tennis competition. However, it was College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London student Rayan Ansari who completely dominated the competition before eventually being crowned regional champion. Rayan said following his victory: ‘am very proud and happy to have won today and looking forward to testing myself further in the national championships.’


The day continued to be successful for the Group with our City and Islington College student Dylan Gregory being crowned men’s regional champion for badminton and Jen Chiesurirn being crowned female table tennis regional champion. Both students are absolutely thrilled with their achievement and cannot wait for the national championships in April 2024.

London’s largest student body at sports events

After the success of football and basketball, Jonathan Silman, the Head of Sport for CCCG, and Rob Murphy, Sports Development Manager at CCCG, couldn’t contain their joy at the achievements of Team CCCG Sport: ‘Our ambition is to become the number 1 Sport College in the country,’ said Silman. ‘The rapid growth of our Sport Academies, combined with a strong desire and a collectively group-wide approach, is fast-tracking our goal.’ This was further enhanced by the success of the final round of regional championships. The growth and the success of the Sports Academies have been further enhanced by this success and Team CCCG reputation is quickly growing with our sporting achievements.

It was noted that these results mean that our Group will be representing London across five different sports. This will mean that Team CCCG will be the college Group providing the majority of students as the London representatives at sports events, and likely nationally also.
