Saturday 27th January Under 11 Warwickshire Bronze
Today was the turn of the Leicestershire littlies – Matilda, Sylvie, Katie, Lola, Quinn, George, Ollie and Jonty all taking part. First up was singles…..
In the girls singles, Katie, Lola and Sylvie all made it through to the top half of the draw going into the knockout stage, with Sylvie making it through to the quarter finals. Matilda had a very tough box but managed to come away as the winner of the consolation draw
Boys singles saw Quinn, George and Ollie all going through to the top half of the draw. They all played amazingly well but unfortunately Ollie lost his game in the last 16 with Quinn making it through to the quarter finals. George played round 1 and 2 fantastically, beating the number 5/8 seed in round 2 to make it through to the quarter finals. Up against a young lad who had beaten the other 5/8 seed but came through to win 11-8 11-5 and through to the semis. We always knew this was going to be a tough one playing the number 2 seed and someone who was a year older than George. Final score was 11-8 13-11. It was a fantastic game and George was more than happy to come away with his first ever medal in his first national tournament.
Later in the day the team played doubles and mixed and they all played out of their skins and showed that Leicestershire are the ones to watch. Well done everyone!
