Katz plays star­ring role as Apollo seal Wem­b­ley ti­tle

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

TA­BLE TEN­NIS Dov Katz ex­pressed pride af­ter help­ing Apollo win the Wem­b­ley and Har­row ti­tle with a game to spare.

Play­ing along­side Eng­land No. 3 Costas Pa­pan­to­niou, and his son Lu­cas, Katz pro­duced sev­eral top-class per­for­mances, win­ning nine man-of-the­match awards along the way.

Apollo hold an unas­sail­able 19-point lead over Low­lands whom they meet in the cup fi­nal on April 3.

Katz said: “The Wem­b­ley and Har­row Ta­ble Ten­nis League is one of the strong­est in Eng­land and to be­come cham­pi­ons with a match to play is a very proud mo­ment for me.

“It’s been a true team ef­fort and I’ve been lucky enough to play along­side my long-stand­ing friend Costas, an Eng­land VETT in­ter­na­tional. My game has im­proved this sea­son as a re­sult of his in­put and at the mo­ment, I feel I’m play­ing the best ta­ble ten­nis of my sport­ing ca­reer – which is re­flected in my av­er­ages and man-of-the-match awards.”
