Paisley's Martin Perry finished the Polish Para Open on a high after winning gold with his Italian partner Matteo Parenzan.

Perry and Parenzan dominated the round-robin men’s class 6 team event in Wladyslawowo, starting with a 2-0 win against Malthe Storgaard, from Denmark, and Piotr Manturz, of Poland, followed by a 2-0 victory over the Israeli team of Danny Bobrov and Gilad Skop.

Their third match against European team silver medallists Greece proved to be key in deciding the gold medal and, after combining with Parenzan to win the doubles 3-1, Perry produced a superb comeback from 2-1, 10-6 down to beat Georgios Mouchthis 15-13 in the deciding set to secure a 2-0 win for his team.

The British/Italian partnership clinched gold with a 2-0 win against Cristian Dettoni, from Chile, and German player Benedikt Muller.

“I wanted to get back to playing well after a disappointing singles and with the Spanish Open coming up,” said Paisley man Perry.

“Matteo and I message each other a fair bit and always chat at competitions, so I was happy to play team with him here.

“Overall, it has been an up-and-down tournament for me, with some positive play coming from the team event.”

In the men’s class 6 singles, Perry beat Irish teenager Conor O’Callaghan 3-0 in his opener. 

Perry took second place in the group with a 3-1 win against 15-year-old newcomer Manturz, which took him through to a quarter-final against Marios Chatzikyriakos.

The pair had met on five previous occasions, with Perry leading their head-to-head 4-1, but it was the European team silver medallist from Greece who came out on top in Poland in another five-set match, taking the decider 11-7 after Perry had levelled at 2-2.
