Brother and sister Perry and Torrie Malik achieved a family double at the Charing Cross Classic PSA Satellite tournament in London.
Perry beat Robert Dadds 3-1 in the men’s final and Torrie won the women’s final in straight games against Katie Cox.
A delighted Perry said: “I’m very pleased to have won the Charing Cross Classic. Having played in it three times before, it means a lot to get my name on the Charing Cross Classic board with some great names. Also my sister, Torrie won the women’s event so that made it two wins for Team Malik this weekend.”
Torrie added: “I really enjoyed the closed satellite in London (Charing Cross) this weekend! Winning it was an even greater experience. Great news that my brother was able to win the men’s competition! So a double victory for me and my brother! Hopefully more wins to come.”
Younger brothers Heston and Bailey also competed at Charing Cross. Heston won his first round match 3-1 against a former World no 274 but was unfortunate to meet his big brother Perry in the second round. Bailey lost his first round 1-3 but played really well against an experienced opponent.
