MBEs for Bayley and Davies

Paralympic table tennis gold medallists Will Bayley and Rob Davies have received MBEs in the Queen’s New Year Honours List.

Kent athlete Bayley won the Class 7 Singles title in Rio, while Welshman Davies was on the top step of the podium in Class 1.

Both are made Members of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to table tennis.

They join a host of Rio heroes on the annual list, headed by athlete Mo Farah, tennis star Andy Murray and Paralympic dressage rider Lee Pearson, who are knighted.

Heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill and rowing great Katherine Grainger receive damehoods.

Bayley, 28, from Tunbridge Wells, said:

 

“I’m so delighted to be given an MBE. It is a huge honour and means so much to me. I’m proud every day to represent Great Britain and I feel privileged to have been able to represent my country in three Paralympic Games already.’’

A soft touch, large sweet spot and powerful performance are the main attribute of this blade.  The Arylate Carbon layers are placed closer to the core for added control.  Suitable for dynamic play and precise placement.

This was the first rubber to feature Butterfly's new "Spring Sponge". Spring Sponge feels hard yet its new technology allows you to hold the ball on the racket longer. Tenergy 05 combines this new explosive sponge with a new tensioned topsheet with maximum surface grip. The result is a rubber that produces massive amounts of spin on serves and topspin drives.
WAS: £63.99
Price: £49.99
Soft pimples and a very thin base are the reasons for outstanding control. Relatively good spin for your attacking strokes. A very elastic sponge produces fast speed as well as good touch.
