About Archana Girish Kamath

Archana Girish Kamath, born on June 17, 2000, hails from Bengaluru. Her parents, Girish and Anuradha Kamath are opthalmologists.

She was introduced to the sport at the age of nine, when she was visiting an uncle in Mangalore who happened to have a ping pong table at home. It was her brother Abhinav who was more enthusiastic about the game and would spar with her.

Domestic Success

  • 2011 - She won the Under-12 and surprisingly the Under-18 titles at the state championships.
  • 2014 - Became the youngest player to win the U-21 national title at the age of 14 years and five months.
  • 2018 - She won her first senior national title after defeating Manika Batra

Youth Olympics

Despite much domestic success, what helped her gain confidence on the world stage was a fourth place finish at the 2018 Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires. She lost the bronze medal match at that time but she made a big impact.

Future

Archana is definitely a player to look out from India and she is definitely making an impact in the field of Table Tennis. We wish her good luck in her Table Tennis career.
