A Bronze medal for the Open team!

The European Championships have ended well with the Open team winning a bronze medal. They beat the legendary Monaco team in their final match to secure the place on the podium - and so doing denied them victory. The competition was won by Israel.

Congratulations to Tony Forrester & Andrew Robson, David Bakhshi & David Gold, Jason Hackett & Justin Hackett, NPC Simon Cope and coach Ben Green.

This completes a hugely successful tournament for the England team, as it is the first European Championships from which all teams have returned with medals (in fact, only one other country has achieved it - France in 1995). Well done to them all.
