Fantastic results for two long-time members of SJBC at the Nottingham U17 Bronze tournament at the weekend. Dan Whaley and Emma Hooper won a gold medal in the Mixed Doubles. Dan also won a gold medal in the Boys Doubles whilst Emma received a silver medal in Girls Doubles and a bronze medal in Girls Singles. Well done to both of you!
The first Big Session mini-tournament of the 2015/16 season took place on Saturday to round up the first half-term’s coaching. Winners of the first session were William Allen, Sam Yates, Jack Allen, Sam Burnham, Hope Sommers and Vicky Mendez.
Winners of the second session were Michael Penn, Behram Khan, Izzy Mullen and Sofia Aujla-Jones. Looks like we have a new and unusual trophy – presumably because the previous winners have forgotten to return their prize!!
Great results for our members at the Notts Restricted tournament :-
Dan Whaley – gold in U17 boys doubles and silver in singles and mixed.
Emma Hooper – gold in U17 girls singles and doubles and silver in mixed plus gold in U15 girls singles, doubles and mixed.
