The National Table Tennis Championships are coming to Preston during November.


Commonwealth Games silver medallist Tin-Tin Ho is among the young table tennis players competing to win the title at the Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre on the University of Central Lancashire campus.

Ho was 15 when she won her mixed doubles medal alongside Liam Pitchford in Glasgow.

She competes in the Junior and Cadet National Championships during Saturday 22 November and Sunday 23 November.

The two day event is open to the public and free to attend.

Manager Martin Baines said: “We are delighted to once again welcome international table tennis athletes to Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre and invite the local public to come along and see them in action.

“It’s a great opportunity for people to see athletes from the Commonwealth Games compete right here on their doorstep and hopefully will help to boost table tennis interest in Lancashire.”

Play begins at 9am each day. Two under-15 champions Tom Jarvis and Kate Cheer are also going to be in action.
