Luxembourg Open

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Good results from the Bournemouth girls in the Luxembourg Open which took place from the 16th to 19th April. Hannah Hicks and Tressa Armitage reached the quarters of the Women’s Team, beating Sweden 1 on the way by a comfortable 2 – 0 with good wins over Daniela Moskovits (WR299) and Jennifer Jonsson (WR303), both ranked well above the English girls. They lost 1 – 2 to the winners Switzerland but Tressa had a great win over Rahel Aschwanden (WR 282).
In the individual tournament Hannah finished in 17th place, Chloe Thomas 28th and Tressa 43rd. During the final stages Chloe beat top Brazilian, Bruna Alexandre ranked almost 200 places above her at 329. However our girls could almost certainly have finished higher as many players had to leave early to catch flights; this was due to the organisers rescheduling the final stages only some days before the event.
