Andrew Baggaley has been named in the England squad for the European Championships.

The 32-year-old Milton Keynes player spearheads a five-strong men’s squad – the same contingent who won Commonwealth Games team silver in Glasgow last year.

Paul Drinkhall, Liam Pitchford, Sam Walker and Danny Reed complete the line-up.

On the women’s side, Commonwealth Games competitors Kelly Sibley, Tin-Tin Ho and Karina Le Fevre are joined by 18-year-old Maria Tsaptsinos, who gets a first senior call-up.

Table Tennis England’s Head of Coaching & Performance, Simon Mills, said: “I’m looking forward to getting the Commonwealth Games men’s team back together and seeing how they perform, and seeing Maria Tsaptsinos earn her first cap.”

The competition runs from September 25 to October 4 in Ekaterinburg, Russia.
