Siblings sparkle at table tennis championships

Brother and sister Louis and Millie Rogove returned from the Cadet & Junior National Championships with medals.

    The Barnet pair, who both attend JCOSS, were invited to the event by virtue of being one of the top 32 players in their age group in England.

    And although they were unable to progress through the group stage into the main draw, they both reached the final of the consolation event, with Millie taking gold and Louis silver.

    Millie defeated Sunderland’s Charlotte Weatherby 3-1 (11-4, 11-7, 5-11, 11-6) in her final, reversing the scoreline from the group stage earlier in the day.

    Millie, aged 12, said: “I’m so happy. I didn’t expect it but I tried my best and kept fighting. Being at the Nationals is quite overwhelming and there are a lot of good players, but it’s very cool as well.”

    Louis also reached the final, though he had to dig deep to get the better of Rhys Davies in the quarter-finals on the way, fighting back in fine style to win 3-2 (2-11, 5-11, 12-10, 12-10, 11-8).

    His final opponent was Jack Rogers from Leicester, who won thanks to a 3-0 (11-4, 11-9, 12-10) scoreline.

    Louis, 15, earlier won one of his two group matches but was unable to qualify for the main draw.

    He said: “It was my first Nationals and I did better than I expected to do, it was a good result for me.”
