Sue’s Ger­man tre­ble

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - TA­BLE TEN­NIS

SUE Col­lier, a lo­cal com­mu­nity phle­botomist and ta­ble ten­nis player, has just won triple gold in a Ger­man In­ter­na­tional Ta­ble Ten­nis tour­na­ment held in Trier tak­ing the over 40s women’s dou­bles, the mixed dou­bles and the 0ver 40’s sin­gles ti­tles. In three weeks she will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Euro­peans in Tam­pere, Fin­land.

Af­ter rep­re­sent­ing Eng­land at ev­ery level – cadet, ju­nior, se­nior and vet­eran cat­e­gories – she now has to self fund all her train­ing, travel, ac­com­mo­da­tion and en­try fees. Last year she won a world bronze medal in Auck­land, New Zealand.

For­tu­nately, a lo­cal busi­ness has en­abled her to fund her trip to the Euro­peans this year but upon her re­turn she has nu­mer­ous master tour­na­ments na­tion­ally and is rep­re­sent­ing Eng­land in the six na­tions event in the Isle of Man in Septem­ber.

Com­ing up are the World Cham­pi­onships in Ali­cante 2016, the Euro­peans in Swe­den in 2017 and the World Cham­pi­onships in Las Ve­gas in 2018, so any of­fers of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance would be grate­fully ap­pre­ci­ated for her to plan for these events. She can be con­tacted on her mo­bile 07791 872324 or by email sue.col­lier3@nhs.net.
