Chloe Triple Champion in Nationals

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

The Welsh National Championships were played in Cardiff on the 6th and 7th June (in every other European Country the Nationals take place annually at the end of February/beginning of March). However the delay in staging the event meant good preparation for Chloe Thomas. Her pre-university college course was almost over, Swedish League matches completed and she had a top flight personal coach present in the form of Hannah Hicks!
In her last season in Under 21 Women Chloe was a clear winner in this event beating last year's Champion Charlotte Carey (Welsh No. 1 and Women's Champion) in 5, though the 5th end was comfortable. In the Women's Open Chloe again beat Charlotte in the semi 3 -- 1 and Megan Phillips in the final 4 --2 to gain her 2nd title. Finally she and Charlotte teamed up to demolish the Phillip's twins 3 -- 0 in the Women's Doubles final, to give Chloe her 3rd title: Chloe Thomas Triple National Champion! In fact Chloe playing with brother Patrick gained a Silver Medal in the Mixed Doubles final too losing to Charlotte and Dan O'Connell.
Not only did Chloe receive congratulatory messages from around UK but also from the National Training Centre in Sweden where she is contracted to play in the Swedish Women's Elite next season.
