Saturday 3rd December and Team Leics Juniors continued their recent medal spree with winning performance both up north and down south…..

Sophie Watson travelled to Gillingham in Kent for an U15 silver event. In singles, she won her group to progress through to the semi finals, unfortunately losing out to the eventual gold medal winner, Notts friend and doubles partner Megan Brierley. Pairing up for the level doubles, there was no stopping the girls who went on to convert their #1 seeding into gold!

Meanwhile, several hundred miles to the north, Izzy Pike and Jess Rodgers were having similar success in the U17 Cheshire bronze event. Izzy won through from her group in singles, narrowly defeating Yorkshire’s Romilly Calvert 21-20 but in a repeat of the final of the Warwickshire U17 event last month, was unable to get past fellow Yorkshire girl Lucy Walker, having to settle again for the silver medal.

There was no such problem in the girls doubles, with Izzy and Jess taking the gold, having defeated the Yorkshire pair of Calvert & Walker for the second time in a month to an even bigger margin 21-10
