Biography

17 year-old Charlotte was introduced to table tennis through her grandfather who passed his passion for the sport down through the generations. After consistently begging him to take her with him, Charlotte finally had her chance to play when she was tall enough to see over the table; and she hasn't looked back since.

Currently training under the watchful eye of Ryan Jenkins at the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff and her club in Germany, Charlotte started playing in 2006 and went on to become the youngest athlete to compete for Team Wales at the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games.

The former Glyncoed Comprehensive School pupil rates her double bronze medal win from the European Youth Championships in 2013 and winning two gold medals (singles and doubles) in the Maltese TTF Global Junior Circuit 2013 as her greatest sporting achievements to date.
