A series of imposing performances, Poland occupied centre stage at the ITTF European Para Championships in the English city of Sheffield, when play concluded on Saturday 9th September, after six days of unrelenting action.

Patryk Chojnowski alongside Natalya Partyka and Karolina Pek completed the full house of three titles.

They emerged the only players to achieve the feat in what was a new format for the tournament which first saw the light of day in Delden, Netherlands in October 1985; men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles replaced the men’s team and women’s team events.

Natalya Partyka clinched the women’s singles class 10 title for an incredible ninth time, before in class 20 partnering Patryk Chojnowski to mixed doubles gold and Karolina Pek to women’s doubles success.

Earlier, Patryk Chojnowski had secured men’s singles class 10 gold for the sixth time, rather differently in women’s singles class 9 it was a first for Karolina Pek. Later both enjoyed success alongside colleague Piotr Grudzien; Patryk Chojnowski in men’s doubles class 18, Karolina Pek in mixed doubles class 17.
