Tin-Tin Ho scored a double as England women kept up their unbeaten record in the European Championships Stage 1 with a 3-1 win in Norway today.

Maria Tsaptsinos put the visitors ahead by defeating Ilka Doval 3-1 (11-3, 11-7, 12-14, 11-9) and Ho doubled the advantage by overcoming Rebekka Carlsen, also in four (11-8, 11-7, 9-11, 11-4).

The youngest team member, Denise Payet, could not secure a whitewash as she was beaten 3-0 (6, 7, 5) bt Rikke Skattet, but Ho completed the overall win, seeing off Doval 3-1 (12-10, 12-14, 11-9, 11-3).

It means England have won all three of their group matches, with home and away victories over Norway sandwiching an away victory in Greece. They face Greece in their final match at home on November 20.
