Al­bany vet­eran leads team

Albany Extra - - Extra Sport -

Al­bany’s Peter Muller has been se­lected as cap­tain of the State over-75 men’s team to com­pete at the Aus­tralian Open Vet­er­ans Ta­ble Ten­nis Cham­pi­onships to be held in Man­durah start­ing to­mor­row.

Mean­while, for­mer Al­bany res­i­dent Mia Zou took out six events in a dom­i­nant dis­play at the WA State Open Ta­ble Ten­nis Cham­pi­onships in Perth last month.

Now liv­ing in Perth, where she is study­ing at uni­ver­sity, Zou claimed the un­der-18 girls’ sin­gles and dou­bles ti­tles, also win­ning the un­der-21 ladies’ sin­gles and dou­bles.

The 18-year-old then went on to take out the open ladies’ sin­gles and dou­bles be­fore com­ing up short in the semi­fi­nal in the open mixed dou­bles.

It is be­lieved to be the big­gest haul in WA ta­ble ten­nis his­tory.

Zou helped WA win gold at the 2017 Aus­tralian Na­tional Ju­nior Ta­ble Ten­nis Cham­pi­onships in Tas­ma­nia in July.
