READING’s Felix Thomis did not lose a single match as he won double gold at the Inter-Regional Finals.

The 12-year-old Leighton Park School pupil was part of the southern region squad which competed against nine other teams from around the country at one of Table Tennis England’s flagship events.

Playing alongside Todd Stanmore from Oxford in the Under 13 boys’ team competition, the duo won every group match 5-0 against South East, London, East midlands and West Midlands to get through to the final.

They faced North West and Thomis gave them the perfect start by defeating Toby Ellis 3-1 (6-11, 11-4, 11-5, 11-8). After Stanmore had beaten Liam Murphy, the boys combined to win the doubles against Murphy and Adam Dennison to seal an unassailable 3-0 scoreline.

Thomis was second seed for the individual event and was in even more impressive form, not even losing a set as he romped to the title, which he clinched with another victory over Ellis, this time 3-0 (11-7, 11-7, 11-6), having beaten team-mate Stanmore 3-0 (11-6, 15-13, 13-11) in the semi finals.

Thomis said: “It’s really good. In the team, we were really confident the whole time. In the individuals, I didn’t drop a set which I’m happy about, and I kept on fighting, which I’m also happy about.

“Todd was the hardest match. I struggled against him because we both know each other really well.”
