Congratulations to Cathy who had two good wins including a 21-13 victory over the current National Champion of Champions 2023 winner!
This puts her into this morning’s quarterfinal v Rebecca Morley from Huntingdonshire.
it means our Senior Fours have managed to be given a delayed start to 1:30 pm. However, if Cathy continues her winning streak, it is like that Marie will step into the Senior Fours.
Alongside that terrific high yesterday afternoon, the Ashford boys who had reached the Fours semi-final were defeated by Lincolnshire and it was all down to the final end. Bitterly disappointing for the boys … and they were absolutely devastated. However in the next few days, they will realise what a fantastic tournament they have had culminating being in the final four teams in the country.
When you consider the combined playing years between three of the team is less than 12 years, it makes it even more amazing. A huge contrast to Val Osman from Gloucestershire who, at 88, became one of the oldest players to reach a National Singles Quarter-final. There is hope for some of us yet!
Also today, Robbie Carter Jr from Poplar and Ollie Shearing from North Greenwich will be representing Middlesex in the Junior Singles.
