Despite a 2 hour journey on a beautiful sunny day, 5 Leicestershire juniors made the trip down to Hertfordshire for this U16 event: Isobel Pike, Jess Rodgers, Sophie Watson, Eve Durrance and Evie Pike joining big sister Izzy for the first time in the same draw!
As has come to be expected from a tournament in one of the southern counties, the players were of a high standard with both Leics pairs only managing to come 2nd in their respective boxes in the Girls Doubles. A highlight was Sophie and Eve managing to defeat their old foes the Lee sisters, thereby denying Hertfordshire a home victory.
In the Girls Singles, Jess Rodgers won through from her box , losing to the eventual winner in the semis to bring home a bronze medal.
