Catering student crowned Cambridgeshire Table Tennis Champion

Holding his medal

Following completion of his high school education in 2021, 16-year-old Law Ching Jay moved to the UK from Hong Kong. Jay enrolled with an English school to improve his language skills before enrolling with Cambridge Regional College to study Catering. 

Jay said, “I have always wanted to be a chef. I am more hands-on than academic, and I am fascinated by cooking and creating dishes for people to enjoy. I plan to progress to Level 2 and Level 3 to pursue a career as a professional chef.”

At the age of 9, Jay started playing table tennis and joined the school team in Hong Kong. Upon moving to the UK, Jay joined clubs in Cambridge, London and Manchester and continued with his hobby alongside his learning. 

Late 2021, Jay entered the Table Tennis England Schools’ Individual Competition as a competitor in the U19 category. At 16, Jay was the youngest competitor in the category and was recently announced as Cambridgeshire Champion in the Regional heats. 

Jay added, “I am happy and excited that I have the opportunity to learn more about table tennis as a sport and gain further experience at a competitive level. I will continue to enjoy table tennis as a hobby, but who knows what will happen in the future. For now, I am focussed on my career as a chef.”

Jay will now attend the Championship finals in April 2022 in Wolverhampton.
