Our Under 17 and ICT team member, Ellie Roberts, travelled down to Cardiff at the weekend for the Welsh National Championships – and came back with a Silver medal. Having won her first round in the girls singles 16 and 16, she came up against the second seed Katie Whiteman, losing her semi 13-21, 13-21: Whiteman then lost the final. Playing with Reya Patil in the girls’ doubles, Ellie took one good win but was beaten by Whiteman and her partner Gean Sou Mo to earn her silver medal.
Ellie is currently ranked 4th in singles in Wales and is top of the doubles rankings with Reya. Congratulations to her!
