Katie Hoult aged 8yrs played in her first under 11yrs national tournament last weekend in Milton Keynes .
Katie entered the singles and the doubles partnering a young lady from Bucks.
The girls won one doubles game out of 3, they took their second game to 3 ends but lost and then came up against the number 1 seeds who ended up winners of the tournament. Katie played 3 games in her singles box, winning 1 and just missing out on her second win by losing in 3 ends.
This took Katie through to the knock out plate event. To mum’s surprise Katie went on to win in the quarters and won the semi, what a first experience playing in a final, she fought hard and never stopped running but unfortunately lost in 2 ends 11-9 11-9.
Katie tried her hardest all day and never stopped smiling and was very pleased to come away with a Silver medal!
