8U Girls Singles Sasha Zlotnik bt Kimika Fukui
Sasha and Kimika had a very competitive final, with their very long rallies, and shot making. Sasha piped it 15-13 after 15 minutes of match play.
9U Girls Singles Giselle Jolie Fiorentino bt Vivienne Thomas
Our 9U Event was an open draw this year with majority of players either an Orange 1 or Orange 1*. In our qualifying all of the matches were close, with Vivienne Thomas, Amani Osman and Hannah Sylvester making it into the main draw. Again highlighting the depth in this age group - 16 out of the 30 matches played in the main draw were 3-setters.
Giselle had a great day and powered through her matches to take the title.
9U Boys Doubles Raphael Hebant and Angad Saggu bt Sergey Gordin and Keiju Yuto
9U Girls Doubles Giselle Jolie Fiorentino and Sofia Negus bt Milica Milojevic and Ana Senic
Our 9U Doubles events were running for the second year in a row, and great to see so many players choosing to stay on and compete in the doubles. It also served as an introduction to players to get used to Fast4 scoring for those who are moving onto 10U events in September. Congratulations to the winners.
