The Senior Schools International Table Tennis Tournament 2016 was held at Limerick University in Ireland. The best players from Ireland and Great Britain qualified to represent their respective countries in this event through county and then national tournaments.
Charlotte Bardsley started her qualification back in January, winning the Worcestershire schools title and then finishing as runner up in the England Schools national competition in April. This meant she was selected to represent England in both the U14 team and individual competitions.
In the team competition, along with her partner Mollie Patterson from Norfolk, they were unbeaten in all their matches to claim the gold medal. Charlotte maintained her fantastic form in the singles and won another gold medal by defeating her team mate in a thrilling final. These two golds are added to the two she won last year when the competition was held in Perth, Scotland.
This weekends achievements have been a perfect preparation for her next tournament in July which is the European Youth Championships being held in Zagreb, Croatia. We wish her and Team England every success at that tournament.
