Following her success in the World Ladies Veterans Singles title earlier this year, we are delighted to report that Barbara who is the Physical Education teacher at St Dominic’s Priory School in Stone has captured two further Racketlon world titles. Racketlon is a combination sport where competitors play a sequence of the four most popular racket sports: Table Tennis, Badminton, Squash and Tennis.
The Championships began well with Barbara partnering Sidse Trier a school teacher from Denmark in the Ladies Veterans Doubles which they won.
Friday saw Barbara defending her mixed doubles title, which she had previously won in the Netherlands in 2013 with her partner Rakesh Gupta. Barbara, the former Staffordshire Ladies Table Tennis and Tennis No. 1 secured a victory after a hard fought match.
The final saw Barbara and Rakesh take on the Swedish/Danish pairing of Anneli Druve and Jack Broe Larsen. The opposition were no match for the English pair’s superior Tennis net play and the title was secured by a winning margin of 12 points.
We look forward to hearing about the next stage in this fantastic journey of achievements, congratulations Barbara.
