Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

A RIS­ING ta­ble ten­nis star from Den­ham landed no less than four gold medals at the Sport­sAble South­ern Dis­abil­ity Grand Prix.

Cheered on by friends and fam­ily, 11-year-old Shae Thakker reigned supreme at the event at his home club in Cip­pen­ham, Berk­shire, on Satur­day.

Among his tri­umphs were the Class Sin­gles and Ju­nior Sin­gles ti­tles, and it was in the fi­nal of the for­mer that Thakker re­ally made his mark.

He beat Welsh para­plegic in­ter­na­tional star Joshua Mor­gan 15-13 in the fifth and de­cid­ing game after a pul­sat­ing fin­ish to a thrilling match.
