BBC Interview Hannah

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Hannah Hicks is being interviewed by BBC South to Day at Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club, which will be televised on Wednesday 10th June from 6.30 onwards.

The interview is taking place due to Hannah's recent selection for England at both Junior and Senior levels. Hannah plays her table tennis in Sweden, but has also been a regular on the English Grand Prix circuit. She has just become the Butterfly Grand Prix Under 21 Women's champion for the second year running, beating fellow English team mate Karina Le Fevre, and improved from 8th place last season to 2nd in the Butterfly Grand Prix Women's senior competition.

It is down to her recent form that she received her first senior England debut in the Joola European Nations League against Belarus on 24th February 2009. Since then Hannah has gained further selection for England, competing in the India Tour and the Commonwealth Table Tennis Championships in Glasgow.

Hannah Hicks' recent success has gained her some much deserved media coverage, which will raise the profile of both herself and table tennis.

Their final match was against South Africa and they soon ran off a 3-0 victory, Kelly Sibley, Joanna Parker and in her first outing at these championships Karina Le Fevre all winning their matches without dropping a set.

This win cemented Englands place at the top of their first stage group and qualified them for a place in the two groups contesting places 1-8 in the Championships. England were drawn with Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand in the second stage.

Their second match of the day, the first in stage two was against New Zealand and was almost as dominant as the earlier one. Three games to zero again and only 2 individual games dropped on the way. Wins for Kelly Sibley, Joanna Parker and Hannah Hicks this time.

Two critical matches to come tomorrow 10:00 against Australia and 16:00 against Malaysia. England win both of these and they would take their place for certain in the Commonwealth Final.

Hannah wins Gold at the Junior Masters and Mathew gets Bronze.

18th May
By Geoff Ware

The Senior National Championships mixed doubles finalists pairing of Hannah Hicks and Chris Doran were sensational in winning their respective Gold medals in the Junior Masters Championships, both in their last year as a junior, this was the first time for Hannah, whilst Chris took his second consecutive Masters title.

Held at the popular Westfield Table Tennis Centre in Wellingborough, Northants, both Hannah and local hero Chris were undefeated throughout the two-day’s play and this in itself was a tremendous achievement.

Hannah consistently chops, chisels and twiddles her way to grind out result after result. Her sheer determination and dexterity destroys her opponents into submission. To beat Hannah you have to be ultra patient, mixing topspin attacks with clever pushing, to then create the right opportunity to smash the ball hard, often playing twenty quality strokes to win a point or force an error. Simply for this reason, only five of her thirteen opponents could muster a set each off the Masters Champion.
