Bendigo twins Hannah and Olivia Green dominated the Victorian Country Table Tennis Championships.

Playing on their home tables, Hannah and Olivia played against each other in the open women’s singles final and the junior girls singles final.

Fittingly, they won one title each. Hannah was victorious in the open women’s final, while Olivia reversed that result in the junior girls final.

The twins also qualified for the family doubles final where they lost to Mark and William Poplawski.

Olivia and Hannah Green’s performances were the highlight of a successful weekend for Bendigo competitors.

Michelle Rey and Daniel McGrath also claimed Victoria Country titles.

Bendigo’s Isabella Connor and Deb Wright were runners-up in the women’s double final. Connor was runner-up to McGrath in the D-grade singles, while Wright was runner-up in the over 40 women’s singles. 

In the team’s events, Ballarat won the prestigious A-grade championship.
