Nicholas Lum (table tennis) is Australia’s no.2 ranked men’s player and becomes the second-youngest table tennis player to represent Australia at the Commonwealth Games after John Tawadrous when he makes his debut in Birmingham, just two months after his 17th birthday. From the age of seven, Nicholas started going to the local table tennis club with his dad every Thursday to watch him play and decided to give the sport a go. Since then, Nicholas has risen through the junior ranks, winning multiple national age titles, as well as enjoying success on the world junior circuit. In 2019, he won the men’s cadet singles title at the Janos Molnar Tournament in Hungary – his first international tournament victory and the first by a non-European player – and was selected to go to the World Table Tennis Championships in 2020 before they were cancelled. In 2021, he reached the last 16 at the World Youth Championships and was awarded the Michael Szabados Award as Australian Junior Player of the Year for the second consecutive year. Nicholas has been at the forefront of promoting the sport and appeared on Channel Seven’s Little Big Shots in 2017 with his younger brother Lucas.
