The end of another tournament and like the gold last week what a tournament it was, ok it was not a gold but that did not detract from the passion or the skill of the players in winning the gold medals on offer.
21 players from Anglesey, Cheshire, Conwy and North East Wales competed in some very close hard fought out games.
With the level of entry and gender some of the groups were merged, but within the groups there were winners in every age group
The tournament started with the combined U-11/13. This group gave us exiting games and three winners Amelie Chandran (Great Orme, Conwy) won the U-11 Girls Singles. Risheka Sathyanathan (Cheshire) won the U-13 Girls Singles beating Amelie Chandran in the final game. The two 8 year olds then teamed up together to win the U-13 Girls Doubles beating Ffion Williams-Frost & Evie Thomas (Llanfairfechan, Conwy) in the final.
The U-13 Boys Singles was won by George Williams-Frost (Llanfairfechan, Conwy) who beat Sam Thomas (Amlwch, Anglesey) the two boys then teamed up to win the U-13 Boys Doubles.
The combined U-15 singles saw the accurate play of Grace Evans (Connah’s Quay, North East Wales) where she topped the singles group beating Oliver Chandran (Great Orme, Conwy) in the final game. This gave Grace the gold medal with the silver going to the girls U-15 Runner-up Risheka Sathyanathan (Cheshire). Oliver took the gold medal for the U-15 Boys Singles with Jake Chow (Vardre) taking the silver medal.
This left the combined U-17 Singles. In group A Eban Jones (Menai Bridge) beat Isaac Lof (Great Orme) and in group B James Maddocks (Wrexham) beat Suhas Shekar (Great Orme). In the semi-finals Eban beat Suhas and James beat Isaac. This gave a final with James Maddocks v 12 year old Eban. James won the gold medal with Eban taking the silver medal.
Well done to all the players especially all the very young who like last week showcased the talent coming through.
