Petrissa Solja was born in the German town of Kandel in 1994. Following impressive results in the Cadet category, Solja made her Senior debut in 2009 and has since gone on to become a regular fixture in the German national team.

The 22-year-old happens to come from a table tennis based family. Her mother Dagmar Solja-Andruszko played for ATSV Saarbrücken in the 1980s, and maybe the most notable mention goes to her sister Amelie Solja, who represents Austria on the international stage.
