Girls perform at Europeans

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Excellent results from the Bournemouth girls Hannah Hicks and Chloe Thomas at the Senior European Championships in Lisbon. The English Team finished in 21st place and only lost one match against Greece when a win would have guaranteed promotion to the Premier Division. Hannah won 5 matches and lost only one and that close on the 5th: in the vital rubber against Greece Hannah won the crucial game to put England 2 -- 1 ahead but both Kelly Sibley and Tin Tin Ho were unable to close the match out.
Chloe also played well for Wales with excellent wins over top girls from Lithuania, Norway and Switzerland to end the tournament with a quote of 4 wins and 4 losses, helping the Welsh Team to a creditable 26th position.
