Czech national championships were played over the last four days in Prague with a glass court built in Galerie Harfa shopping mall.
The titles were won by Olga Kolářová and Daniel Mekbib.
Olga beat defending champion Anna Serme 3/1 in the semis and dominated in the final against first time finalist Eva Feřteková to claim her 5th national title.
Anna Serme won the bronze medal after she beat Michaela Cepova.
Daniel successfully defended his last year’s title to win his second. He beat Ondrej Uherka in the semis and Jakub Solnicky in the final, both with 3/1 score.
