Charlie serves a winner


TABLE tennis player Charlie Hollow, pictured, is on top of the world after winning the Australian under-11 boys’ doubles championship.

Charlie, of Mt Martha, teamed with Oscar Savige, of Queensland, to win the title at Wollongong earlier this month (“Juniors focus on national success” The News 1/7/19). His sister, Georgia, 8, also played in the championships.

Charlie, 10, also came fifth in the singles and fifth in the doubles. In September he will head to New Zealand to play for Australia.

The children, who live in Mt Martha and attend Mt Martha Primary, train at the Mornington Table Tennis Club in Dunns Road, Mornington.

More international competition comes later in December when Mornington Table Tennis Club hosts the 2020 Oceania Olympic qualifier event.
