No Final Spot For Wales In Halmstad

Wales lost out to Malaysia in the semi finals of Division 3 last night to end their dreams of glory in Halmstad.

Beth Roberts was unfortunate to lose out to number Ho Ying 3/0 (10/12, 9/11, 10/12) after several set points couldn’t be converted. Charlotte then lost her first match of a great competition to defender Alice Chang 7/11, 8/11, 11/13. After levelling it at 1-1, Chloe was unable to break through Karen Lyne in the 3rd and 4th sets losing 3/1 (6/11, 11/9, 4/11, 12/14).

This means the women didn’t move up into Division 2 next time when the Team Championships move to Korea in 2020. We have however qualified into the 3rd division once more.

Earlier in the day Wales beat Macau 3/1 in the Quarter Final with Charlotte (2 wins) and Beth (1 win) bringing the victory.
