A group of our stronger juniors travelled down to Thornaby last weekend and several of them came back with medals.
Tim Bodani won his group and played a great semi, only losing 21-20, 14-16, 18-20 to Scottish junior Finlay Jack taking a bronze medal. James Dodd won three of his four group games and there were wins for Jack Tilbury and Sonny Ho. In the girls singles, Charlotte Graham, Amy Ward and Ellen Davison each scored one group win.
Tim and Charlotte have a successful doubles pairing in the mixed and built on this again to reach the final, losing to the top seeds 12-15, 15-8, 5-15 but taking the silver medals. Ellen and Sonny had one group win. In the level doubles, Charlotte and Amy won two of their three group games to take bronze medals and Tim partnered James, taking bronze again after winning three of their four group games. Jack and Ollie Edmondson scored one win.
