Merseyside Disability Table Tennis Grand Prix Results


The Merseyside Disability Table Tennis Grand Prix took place on the 6 / 7 December at Greenbank Sport Academy.
More than 50 players took part in an exciting tournament, which offered ranking points for members of British Table Tennis Association for People with Disabilities (BTTAD).
The event attracted some of table tennis’ leading players including Liverpool born Jack Hunter-Spivey who currently ranks 11th in the world. Jack won Class 5, Wheelchair Open and Wheelchair Doubles (playing alongside partner Shaun Newcomb) categories.
Tournament organiser, Mark Palmer said “The event met all our expectations; it’s great to have the status of a ranking tournament, but to still incorporate grass roots players. Thanks to officials and volunteers for helping the event to run so smoothly.”
