Worksop table tennis star Sam Walker has been selected for yet another international championship.

The former Redlands and Valley student is one of four players called up by England for the World Championships in Dusseldorf.

Walker joins Liam Pitchford and Paul Drinkhall – with whom he won team bronze at the Worlds last year – and David McBeath at the event, which begins on 29th May.

This year’s competition features individual rather than team events, and the four Englishmen will appear in singles and doubles.

Before then, the same squad faces home-and-away play-offs against Slovakia in April to determine whether they will qualify in the top division for the European Championships in September.
