THREE Warrnambool table tennis players have delivered the association’s first A grade country championship victory in more than half a century.

Simon Johnson, Ben Taylor, and Joe Sycopoulis scored Warrnambool’s first A grade title in 66 years on Monday.

Country Championship co-ordinator Mark Taylor described the feat as a “fantastic achievement”.

Taylor said the trio was thrilled to bring home the crown.

“It’s something Simon has been trying to win for a long time,” Taylor said.

“They were very excited. They had a bit of a slow start but made up ground.”
