A Sprowston Community High School student came away with two medals from the School Games National Finals held at Loughborough University.

Bishop, 13, was part of the England White team and came away with a bronze medal in the individual competition and a silver alongside Martha Harris in the doubles.

Bishop said: 'I've played really well; I've improved my serve since I've last played in a tournament so I'm really happy with that. I'm leaving with two medals which is great for my first School Games.'

The School Games are the springboard for future athletes with 56 of the 382 athletes representing Team GB at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio having competed at the School Games.

The four-day event, which took place over last weekend, is supported by National Lottery funding from Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust.
