Taverners ambassador Bayley on top of the world

Lord’s Taverners ambassador Will Bayley became Para Table Tennis World Champion last week (10 September) after defeating world number one Maksym Nikolenko (Ukraine) at the World Championships in Beijing.

Bayley took the world title with a thrilling 3-2 victory in the final and this Gold medal adds to the European title he won in 2011 and the silver medal he claimed at London 2012.

Becoming World Champion is a fantastic achievement for Will, who was born with arthrogryposis, a rare congenital disorder that affected four of his limbs and also overcame childhood cancer.
