Liam Pitchford and Joanna Drinkhall claim national titles
Liam Pitchford and Joanna Drinkhall have won the men's and women's English senior national table tennis titles.
Pitchford, 20, beat Paul Drinkhall 4-2 in a repeat of the 2011-12 and 2012-13 finals as he retained his crown.
"I've had a good season in Germany and I'm playing well. I'm just hoping to keep improving," said Pitchford.
Joanna Drinkhall, 26, who married Paul in August 2013, denied Kelly Sibley a fourth consecutive title with a 4-2 win in Sheffield.
"I'm really chuffed. It's always a hard match against Kelly and it means so much to me to win," said Drinkhall.
"When it's your goal and you fail to reach it three years in a row you think it might not be your turn.
"I was really consistent and didn't give her any cheap points - that was the difference."
Both sets of finalists also combined to claim the men's and women's doubles titles.
