Fremantle veteran takes gold at national table tennis tournament

ONLY one representative from Fremantle recently competed in a national table tennis competition, but that is all it took to win gold.

Nanako Nomura was the only member of the Fremantle Table Tennis Club to compete in the Australian Open Veteran Table Tennis Championships held in Sydney recently.

Her over-60 mixed doubles partner is one of the biggest Australian names in the sport, Paul Pinkewitch.

Nomura said she had never paired with Pinkewitch before and they had to learn how to coordinate as they played.

“We won the semi-final (against the 2015 winners) 3-2 and in the final we won comfortably against the winners in 2014 3-0,” she said.
