    · 18 year old Table Tennis hot shot Lewis Gray from Benenden has been winning national titles since he was 10. Consistently one of the best young players around, he is the current junior British champion and has a string of domestic honours this season.

    · In this fiercely competitive global sport (215 countries, 400 million players), Lewis is a regular junior England international with representative honours in more than 15 countries.

    · He combines full time studies at Grantham Table Tennis Academy with commuting to Belgium to play for a club near Brussels and is currently nationally ranked No.2 junior (U18).

    · Committed and ambitious, his sights are set on climbing the senior rankings (currently No. 23) and making further in roads abroad where he has already won medals at European level. Last week at the national senior championships he raised his game and tested the England champion and sure to be 2012 Olympian - Paul Drinkhall + reached the semi finals of the doubles

    · One of his strongest attributes is his professional approach and ‘never say die’ attitude – on the lookout for a place in a foreign club - a deferred university place in England may have to wait if he realises his boyhood dream to become a full time professional table tennis player.........bring on the Olympic Games 2016!

    Quote from Lewis - How has the P&O Funding helped me:

    “P&O Ferries funding has helped me considerably over the years. I have used the money primarily for areas that I would not normally be able to afford such as additional ‘high level’ coaching and sparring, competition entry fees and specialist equipment. All these areas are vital for me to be able reach elite international level and pursue my dream of becoming a professional table tennis player”
