Saturday 8th October saw 4 of Team Leics U14 players make the trip up north to Liverpool for the U15 Silver & Bronze event; Evie Pike, Grace Sherwin, Ayush Panchal and Owen King.
Both boys narrowly missed out winning their singles groups but there was no doubt about the doubles; Ayush and Owen won some tight games to progress through to the final where they were narrowly pipped to the gold in a closely fought match.
With girls singles up next, Evie played well to place 3rd overall and then teamed up with Grace again for the doubles. The girls gave it their all, missing out on the silver medal by just 1 point when they lost the deciding game 17-15.
This obviously fired Grace up for the mixed doubles! She and her Lancs partner Akshay continued their winning ways after making the quarter-finals in the recent U13 National Championships, winning through from their group and going on to claim the gold medal in a tense final. Well done Grace!
A great start to the season for all players!
