Masters Success for Hugo

A successful weekend for Hugo Pang in the English Masters (top 12 boys and girls in the country) on the 4th and 5th of January. Hugo, Alec Ward and Alex Ramsden were all unbeaten on the first day with top seeds Tom Jarvis and Luke Savill both trailing. On the second day Hugo lost to both Luke and Tom but went on to win all his other games, which put him in the Silver medal position. Three boys, Tom, Hugo and Alex all ended up with 9 wins, but Tom beat Hugo to take Gold and Hugo beat Alex. Tom had 30 - 9, Hugo 28 - 12 and Alex 30 - 19. Our thanks to Matt Ware who did a professional job in guiding Hugo through the competition.
Amy Blagbrough also played in the event and achieved a creditable 7th place. Interestingly she played the best of all the girls against Zahna Hall, the left-handed defender and Silver medalist, only losing deuce on the 5th set.
