There was success last week for some of our younger juniors.Playing in the Nottinghamshire Under 13 Silver event, Sarah Wilson teamed up with Bethany Newis of Cheshire to win the girls doubles and then partnered fellow member of the Newcastle Performance Centre, Murray Wright of Durham, to reach the semi-finals in the mixed competition. Sarah had also performed well in the singles but was unfortunate to come up against the eventual tournament winner in an early group match. In the same event, Ashraf Alam, our promising under 12, scored some good wins but was unable to progress beyond the group stage: good experience gained, nevertheless.
Asmita Chaudhari had travelled in the other direction, to the Midlothian Under 12 tournament, where she came up against girls at least two years older than herself. She acquitted herself very creditably and won the gold medal in the singles plate competition.
