2018 Scottish National Championships Senior Events
Saturday 28 April
Perth`s Gavin Rumgay created Scottish Table Tennis history at the weekend when he won a record thirteenth Men`s Singles Title at the rescheduled National Championships on Saturday at Bell`s Sports Centre, Perth.
Rumgay, Scotland`s only professional player, equalled East Kilbride`s Euan Walker`s 12 titles last year and fresh from competing at the Commonwealth Games in Australia earlier this month, overcame his team-mates, Colin Dalgleish in the semi-final and no2 seed Craig Howieson from Edinburgh in an entertaining and high quality final to claim his record breaking thirteenth title. Craig defeated Niall Cameron in his semi final.
Craig Howieson took some consolation in winning an impressive tenth Mens Doubles Title, this time with Colin Dalgleish against West of Scotland`s Sean Doherty and Chris Main.
Ayrshire`s Rebecca Plaistow had a brilliant day completing a highly impressive treble winning the Women`s Singles (for the second time) against Helensburgh`s Lucy Elliott, the Women`s Doubles with Lucy Elliott defeating Alisa Khalid and Jill Taylor, and the Mixed Doubles with Colin Dalgleish against Lucy Elliott and Niall Cameron.
