Tin-Tin Ho

This year’s event was held at the University of Nottingham, which is familiar territory for Tin-Tin who is currently studying for a Medical degree at the University.

Tin-Tin came into the championships this year determined to win back the Women’s Singles title she lost to Maria Tsaptsinos last year, she succeeded in beating Emily Bolton in four straight games.

In the women’s doubles, Tin-Tin and Emily Bolton combined to take the gold, with a 3-0 (11-1, 11-5, 11-8) victory over young sisters Erin and Anna Green.

The mixed doubles was a shock result as Mollie Patterson and Ismaila Akindiya defeated Tin-Tin and Liam Pitchford 3-1, with Ho and Pitchford taking 2nd position on the podium.

All-in-all an exciting outcome for Ho who has suspended her medical studies whilst she devotes her attention to her Table Tennis ambitions.

Born to play Table Tennis

The 24-year-old from London was given the initials TT by her table-tennis-obsessed father who wanted to name his daughter after table tennis. Tin-Tin’s brother was named Ping and she narrowly escaped being called Pong but her mother objected. Luckily Tin-Tin has lived up to her namesake, winning multiple national titles and two Commonwealth silver medals, and appeared at the 2020 Summer Olympics, becoming the first female table tennis player from Great Britain to qualify for an Olympics since Atlanta 1996.

Last summer Tin-Tin stopped by Profeet’s Fulham Road store for her 3D Motion Analysis with Profeet biomechanist, Morgan.

Tin-Tin, explained why custom insoles are so important for her…

I used to experience plantar fasciitis but I’ve not had any pain since wearing the custom insoles and that’s really important for me as my game is based on balance, stability and my strength of being able to move fast on the table.
There’s loads of small movements and adjustments in table tennis, often in unnatural positions and you’re quite prone to injuries as well so I think having insoles and shoes is the foundation to my movement.”
