BTTAD National Championships 2017

Martin Perry in action

Martin Perry celebrated his promotion last week to the British Performance Squad by taking the class 6 singles title at the 2017 British Para Table Tennis Championships in Grantham, beating the European bronze medallist and three time Paralympian David Wetherill 3-2 in a thrilling final.

“To beat someone like Dave who is top five in the world is a fantastic result for me,” said Perry, who also received the Player of the Tournament Award. “It was a really good match and we both played really good table tennis. It means an awful lot to me to be National champion. I’ve been Scottish champion a few times and that means a lot to me but to say that I am British champion as well is a fantastic feeling.”
