February 24, 2009 No Comments »

BRITISH CLOSED U15/U19.

The U15 and U19 nationals took place in Manchester on the weekend 20th-22nd on February. There were a few juniors from Northumbria who competed.

KIM HAY (in photo)- Seeded number 2 for the U19 event Kim duely made it to the final where she lost 3-0 to number 1 seed Sarah-Jane Perry. A great effort to make it that far and hopefully will be enough to claim a place in the England team to play in the Europen Junior Champs in Germany.

LUCY BEECROFT – Lucy at only 12 yrs old was seeded 9/16 in the U15 event and not only won her first match she then beat 5/8 seed Hannah Measures to make it to the quarter finals. She Lost to number 2 seed Hannah Williams from Wales and eventually finished in an impressive 6th place.

HANNAH CLIFF – Hannah had first to qualify for the main draw where she lost to Emily Whitlock 3-0. That was to be her only defeat she won the plate beating Yorkshire’s Jade thompson in the final.

MARIA BAINBRIDGE – Maria played in the U15’s where she had to first play a qualifying match to make it to the main draw where she also played the number 2 seed Hannah Williams and lost 3-1. She then made it to the quarter-finals of the plate.

ELLIOTT PARK – Elliott also had to qualify in the U15’s and in the first round he met 5/8 seed Alex Pembertin from Wales, he lost a close 3-0 and then like Maria he was knocked out of the plate at the quarter-final stage.

RICHARD SHELLAM – Richard had to win 2 rounds of qualifying to reach a very strong U19’s main draw. He managed to win his first match but lost in the second qualifying round and didn’t make it through this time.
