  • Description

    The finals of the womens' doubles competition in the Norwich Union Table Tennis Championships held in Brighton, United Kingdom on Saturday (11 January) turned out to be a duel between two teams from The People's Republic of China.

    The fact that China sent only a middle-ranking team to the tournament -- yet one which proved so successful -- underlines the strength and skill of the Chinese national squad. High ranking players from all over Europe, the USSR and Japan travelled to Brighton to take part in the Championships -- the last major international event before the world Championships in India next month -- but, as far as the women were concerned, Chinese superiority came to the fore.

    Yu Ching-Chia -- ranked 18th in the world ratings -- teamed with Yen Kui-li to take the Coronation Cup title in three consecutive games from compatriots Li Ming and Liu Hsin-yen. The game was close fought as the final score showed 21-18, 21-18, 21-19.

    An umpiring error in the final stages of the third game caused confusion for a while, after Miss Yu and Miss Yen had fought back to 17-all after trailing by three points. But the winners clinched the match in fine style with an impressive rally to capture the final point.
