My name is Colin Judge. I’m 24 years old and was born with three missing limbs. I started playing table tennis nearly 11 years ago and the sport has been a massive part of me since then. It gave meaning to my life during some very difficult times. My dream is to qualify for the Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
I’ve made a decision to put my career on hold and follow an intense plan of competitions and training abroad. I’m completely committed to table tennis now.
I would not be European champion without the support of my family and friends. I’d greatly appreciate any donation, no matter how small to help me fulfil my dream of becoming a Paralympian in the sport that changed my life.
I have setup a GoFundMe page to help achieve my dream:
