A week after medalling at our Junior Circuit events, Charlotte Graham, Amy Ward and Tim Bodani went off to Thornaby to pick up some more bronze medals.
From a very competitive field of 37 players, Tim did really well to win his group, beating a seed to 16 and progressing to the semis where he lost 10-21 to the eventual winner. In the girls’ doubles, Charlotte & Amy came so close to a silver medal, losing 20-21 to the Zhu sisters from Teesside. And in the mixed, Charlotte & Tim had three good wins to take bronze again.
Several more of our juniors performed very creditably and recorded good victories. Finlay Smith won his singles group before going out in the quarter finals and had another good run in the boys’ doubles. James Dodd had two good singles wins and the two Matthews, Grant and Short, also had singles wins.
