Abbie, one of our 2nd year Physiotherapy undergraduates, took part in two table tennis tournaments over the summer.
One was individual where she came third and the other was a team tournament.

The individual tournament was the Liverpool Grand Prix playing in the womens band one event on the 17th August coming 2nd in her group, beating 3 players, including the irish number 1 (Ashley Givan), and losing one match 3-2 against the scottish number 1 (Gillian Edwards).
Then playing the Welsh number 4 (Megan Phillips) in the quarters beating her 3-1. Abbie lost in the semi final 3-1 to the eventual winner and Welsh number 3 (Angharad Phillips).

The team tournament was Womens British League, with Abbie playing for her club Burton Uxbridge TTC (a premier division team) on the 28th-29th September. Despite being quite ill, Abbie had a good weekend winning 8 out of 10 matches including beating the English womens ranked number 4 (Karina Le Ferve) 3-1, and the English womens number 6 (Emma Vickers) 3-0, and Guernsey number 1 3-2 (Alice Loveridge).
