Joanna Drinkhall crowned English Table Tennis Champion

March 3, 2014

Joanna Drinkhall defeated Kelly Sibley 4-2 to become English table tennis champion at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.


British number two Drinkhall denied Sibley the chance to win four straight national titles, upsetting the form book over a tight, well-contested match.

Afterwards Drinkhall expressed her delight at winning her first national title since 2009/2010.

“I’m really chuffed,” she said, “it’s always a hard match against Kelly and it means so much to me to win. When it’s your goal and you fail to reach it three years in a row you think it might not be your turn.

“I was really consistent today and didn’t give her any cheap points – that was the difference,” she added.
