He went into the tournament at No 5 and came out with a Silver Medal. Although he lost to Luke Savill, the Gold Medallist who had only one defeat to Marcus Giles, Hugo beat Marcus, the No 1 Seed on the first day by a comfortable scoreline of 3 -- 1.

Report on the Junior British League (girls divisions)

Last year at this time, the Bournemouth Sports Girls team finished runners up in division 3. It was a surprise then when the team were promoted straight into division 1 for this year. The first weekend went reasonable well with the team in contention of staying in the division. This weekend however proved too difficult for a much depleted Bournemouth Sports team.

Finn Cruises to Victory in 4 Star East Midland Event

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Report By Dean Morgan-Bayliss
Finn Morgan-Bayliss of Bournemouth Sports produced an emphatic performance to win the East Midlands 4 Star Cadet Boys Band 1 singles title on Sunday 13th January in Grantham. 43 boys took to the tables split across 14 groups to start the day. Although Finn dropped both his first sets to 8 in his group matches first thing in the morning, he was in inspired form in the knock out phase which took place later in the day. Last 16 match against William Bell (Yorkshire) 3-0 (6,8,8). His quarter final opponent was Kin Fung Chan (Cheshire); somebody that Finn had played earlier in the year at the Junior British league qualifiers and won in the fifth narrowly. This time round however Finn opened strongly winning the first set 11-2 and going on to win the next two sets 11 and 8.

James Chappell (Lancs) was Finns semi final opponent. A player that Finn had played recently at the Nationals and won a close fifth set match so expected a tough test. This time round Finn was in his zone and took complete control of the table winning 3-0 (8,4,8). What a difference a few months makes!

HANNAH IS IN FINE FORM

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Hannah McErlane of Bournemouth Sports produced a superlative performance to win the North Herts Junior Open on Saturday and also claim the runner up spot in the junior banded event. She walked away with a couple of trophies and £50 cash prize money for her efforts.
In the early stages of the banded event in the morning, it was evident that the tournament would be a three girl fight for the title between Hannah, Evie Foster from Kent ranked some 300 points above Hannah, and a very good Chinese girl, Maria Wang, who has just arrived in England from Australia but has not yet been awarded a ranking by the ETTA. The event was a round robin affair and Hannah beat all before her until she met Evie Foster. Evie was playing with short pimples and Hannah had problems in adjusting to her style of play. Evie won and Hannah had to settle for second place.

National League

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Bournemouth Sports continued their winning streak in the British League Division 1 South-West at Harlow on Sunday 13th January. A 7-1 victory against Eastfield Peterborough followed up by a 5-3 win over York Gardens now means that the team are 5 points clear of second placed Godmaling Coversure with four matches to play. With London Progress II dropping points, the team are already assured of second place and a play-off birth for the Premier Division.
The team comprising of George Downing, Nathan Bingham, Stephen Foster and Matthew Haynes were on top form against Eastfield and the only loss was by Nathan in the fifth game against their number one player, Jon Hall. Nathan has been unlucky with net cords and edge balls at critical stages in matches throughout the season and this latest defeat was no exception. The rest of the team won quite comfortably and played well in every set.
