Cartagena table tennis team wins national title


WOMEN’S TABLE tennis team UCAM Cartagena have been crowned Superdivision National League champions last weekend, with two games of the season still to play.

The University team won both their last two games 4-0 against Oroso Abanca Gallego and Alicante TM 4-0 and are now mathematically certain of winning the league and regaining the title they lost last year to Balaguer Villart Logistic.

Their nearest challengers Balaguer and Girbau Vic TT both lost their weekend games, handing the Superdivision championship to the Cartagena women.

An impressive season has seen the team remain unbeaten, winning all of their 20 games and with upcoming fixtures against both of their main rivals, they will be eager to see out the season undefeated.

The Cartagena club has won more titles in Spanish table tennis than any other club including 18 league titles and 14 Queen’s Cup victories. They have also been crowned European ETTU Cup champions on two occasions.

The multi nation team comprises Romanian Iulia Necula, Swede Matilda Ekholm, Ukrainian Tetyana Bilenko, China’s Zhipei Wang, plus Maria Xiao Sara Ramirez from Spain.

Next up on the agenda for UCAM TM is the Queen’s Cup on July 24 and 25 in Almeria, where they will try and retain the trophy they won last year.
