DRUMCHAPEL Table Tennis Club’s para stars Martin Perry and Conor McAdam are celebrating more success after claiming a gold medal at last week’s the Belgian Open.

Perry also picked up a silver in the class six singles event.

Perry and McAdam topped their group in men’s class six team event with two wins from two.

They then came through a battle in the semi-final against Germany, fighting back well from 2-0 down to take the doubles 3-2.

Laue levelled for Germany by beating McAdam 3-0 but Perry recovered from losing the first set to Muller to win the deciding singles 3-1.

In the final against the Romanian/Greek combination of Simion and Mouchthis they took the doubles 3-2 and Perry clinched the gold by taking the first singles match 3-1 against Mouchthis.

“It’s a great feeling to win gold,” said Perry. “Playing with Conor was fun. It’s something we’ve not done for a while and I think that showed at the beginning as our doubles play wasn’t so strong but in the final we played some good, clever table tennis and Conor was vital in that.

“His service in the final doubles match could not have been better.”

Perry and fellow Brit Paul Karabardak both topped their groups in men’s class six singles after winning their three matches 3-0 and won their quarter-finals against talented young German Benedikt Muller (3-0) and Georgios Mouchthis from Greece (3-1) respectively.

Perry put up a great performance to beat the European bronze medallist Bobi Simion from Romania 3-2 secure an all-British final which Karabardak won 3-1.

Karbardak hailed Perry’s performances after the final.

The 32-year-old said: “I felt in good form and I needed to be at my best to beat Martin who was playing brilliantly – the best I’ve ever seen him play.

Perry said: “Topping my group filled me with confidence. Simion is just off the back of a good Europeans so I knew he was playing well but I believed in my ability and I played some great table tennis and showed how much I’ve raised my game recently.”
