Enfield’s Denise Payet ended the domestic season by taking silver at the Table Tennis England Junior National Cup.

The event, this year held in Plymouth, sees the top 10 players in the under-18 national rankings play each other in a round-robin tournament.

17-year-old Payet was top seed for the event and fought closely with second seen Charlotte Bardsley and third seed Mollie Patterson for the medals.

The trio remained unbeaten through the first six rounds of fixtures before Bardsley ended Patterson’s streak with a 4-1 win (11-4, 10-12, 11-8, 11-5, 11-1) in the seventh round.

Patterson, though, recovered to beat Payet 4-3 (7-11, 7-11, 12-10, 5-11, 13-11, 11-7, 12-10).

Enfield player Payet then recovered from her own setback to inflict defeat on Bardsley in the final round, winning 4-2 (12-10, 7-11, 7-11, 11-6, 11-3, 11-7).

This meant that all three girls finished with eight wins from nine matches, meaning the destination of the medals was decided by countback.

Bardsley got the verdict which pushed Payet to silver, while Patterson claimed the bronze.

It was revenge of sorts for Bardsley, who was defeated by Payet in the final of the Junior National Championships last month.

Payet’s opportunity to bounce back comes next month when she represents England at the European Youth Championships, which start on July 7 in the Czech Republic.
