Due to Georgia’s success at this event she will be attending the National Finals at Doncaster Dome on the Saturday 20th April 2013, it will be a challenge but Georgia is up for it and will do her best. When Georgia goes to the Nationals she will be grouped and will compete against winners from other counties in her age group but only two players can go through to the International round. Over 300 players representing 50 counties will gather at The Dome competing Under 11, 13, 16 and 19 tournaments for both boys and girls. This is the largest one day event in the table tennis calendar in England.

Georgia started to play table tennis at the age of 6, as her Nana and Grandpa taught her at their club at Brumby Hall so she has a lot of experience playing table tennis. When she was 10 years old, her parents got her a table tennis table so she could practise, so she has made a lot of progress since the age of 6. Her Nana and Grandpa are so pleased with her, "She can beat me and her brother (Damon) and it is delightful to see, she puts up a brilliant fight, she can beat her entire family now, it is unbelievable, well done Georgia!"

Her teachers at school are also very proud of her, Miss Downs, her PE teacher, said “Georgia represents The Axholme Academy at a number of different sports but she has done fantastically well to get through to the National Finals. We wish her the best of luck.” This is reiterated by the rest of the school and we are looking forward to hearing the result.
