Towards the end of January Hannah again won the West of Scotland GP beating Chloe in the semis and Karina Lefevre 3 - 0 in the final. Chloe had good wins over Nicole Hall (Wales) and Corinna Whitaker (Scotland) in the Open and won the Band 1 beating Gillian Edwards (Scotland) in the final.

In the quarters Steve met Martin and Jamie played Ed with the younger players proceeding to the semis. Jamie then provided the shock of the tournament beating Hugo in three close straight games while Nathan cruised past Stephen to book his place in the final.

Hard Bat Tournament

Our hard bat tournament on Sunday 1st December provided at least one major shock. Jordan Pang, drawn in the same group as Zac Dowling and brother Hugo, won the group beating Hugo 12 - 10 on the 5th and coming back from 0 - 2 down! In the other half of the draw Nathan Bingham was dominant, playing almost the same as he does with his normal racket. Eric Buckley also demonstrated his skill with the hard bat and most of the younger performers had little chance against him.
