Australia’s Class 11 team have won bronze at the first ever ITTF Para Table Tennis World Team Championships.

Sam Von Einem and Rory Carroll had defeated Japan in their opening match to ensure a place on the podium. But it was two close calls that followed for the team, going down to both France and Hong Kong 2-1, meaning they narrowly missed out on a higher place finish.

Meanwhile the Class 8 men’s team of Nathan Pellissier, Trevor Hirth and Barak Mizrachi had to make do with fourth place in their group, after being unable to get a win on the board.
