The weekend of 4th and 5th November saw firstly Matilda Sherwin and Sylvie Walker travel to Milton Keynes for U11 Webber tournament. Doubles was first and the pair had some well drilled opponents but they fought really hard and secured a Bronze in the round robin. Next was the singles and both performed very well with Sylvie only losing to the overall winner in the group phase and gaining a quarter final place. Matilda overcome the highest ranked player with great ease to line up a tough match against one of Buckinghamshire’s top players and just when she looked as though a great win was secured she took a heavy fall and had to retire.
Unfortunately Sylvie couldn’t overcome the Yorkshire girl in the quarterfinals but a great achievement in her 1st tournament. A great start for the young ones.
