Reigning triple English Table Tennis Champion Andrew Baggaley has signed a 1 year deal with Pro A French National League Club Nice CPC in the South of France for the 2010/2011 season.

Andrew will make his debut, in what is now widely regarded as Europes’ strongest National League directly after the Commonwealth Games in October 2010.

It will be first time Andrew has represented a club in France during his career in a league that boasts the 2004 Olympic Champion and a number of players in the top 20 on the World Ranking List.

It is the first season in the club’s history that Nice CPC have competed in Pro A after last season winning promotion from Pro B which is the second tier of clubs in France.

Andrew commented..
“This is an exciting opportunity for me to excel against the best players in the world and I hope to help my new club Nice CPC to a successful first season in what I believe to be the strongest League in Europe.”

Andrew makes the move to Nice CPC after a brilliant 5 season spell at DKV Borges in Spain where he led the club to a semi-final appearance in the ETTU Cup only to go out of the event on a count-back and helped the club to finish in 2nd position in the Spanish National League Super Division.

Andrew has also represented Clubs in Germany (3 seasons), Sweden (2 seasons) and Belgium where he made his professional debut in the sport, aged only 13 years old.
