Serving up success: top title for Jersey’s young table tennis star

Monday 13 November 2023


A 16-year-old local table tennis star has secured the title of the new British Senior Woman’s Champion.

Hannah Silcock's performance over the weekend included 14 singles wins out of 15 matches, culminating in a 3-1 victory in the final against Ireland's Mia O’Rahilly Egan.

 This recent triumph adds to Silcock's growing list of achievements as a rising star in British table tennis.

In July, she celebrated her 16th birthday by winning her first-ever Island Games gold medal alongside her sister with a 4-0 victory over Guernsey in the women's doubles.

This was Jersey's first-ever table tennis team gold.

This victory followed Silcock's “standout performances” at The Commonwealth Games last year, where she had back-to-back wins at the age of 15.
