Grant Property Announce Sponsorship of Disabled Table Tennis Champion, Martin Perry
Grant Property has signed a deal today with Class 6 disabled table tennis athlete Martin Perry to support him in his build up to the Paralympics.
Paisley born Martin, who was born with no hands, one forearm and only one leg, is currently the Scottish and British champion, is ranked number 18 in the world and recently won Team Gold at the European Championships. His busy sporting calendar includes the Belgian Open later this month, the US Open in December, the British National Championships in March, the Italian Open in March, the Slovenian Open in May, the Slovakian Open in May and, qualification allowing, the World Championships in September, with his ultimate aim being the Paralympics in Tokyo in 2020.
Martin says: “I am delighted to team up with Grant Property – it is always exciting when a new partnership is formed. I’m really looking forward to working alongside and getting to know Grant Property and its employees on a more personal level. I’m sure our time together will be fun and eventful and more importantly, successful.”
When Martin is not training hard and participating in world class tournaments, he gives his time to helping other amputees and disadvantaged youngsters.
Managing Director of Grant Property, John Moran says: “Martin Perry is an inspiration. Not only has he overcome his own disabilities to become a world class athlete, but he is a fantastic role model to others. His humour and enthusiasm are infectious and uplifting, and his dedication to the sport is obvious. He will be a perfect ambassador for Grant Property as he represents a lot of our own values, and we will be following his progress to the Paralympics with great interest.”
