IDBL Junior Championships 2017
A massive congratulations to all of our Junior players for entering the 2017 IDBL championships.
Over the past few years our junior players have struggled in tournaments and many of them are put off playng in the IDBL championships, this is a real shame and with the loss of interest sadly no under 15's from Meridians entered the tournament this year.
However we had 4 players from our club who entered into the Under 18's tournament and it was a day of mixed success for our young players.
The doubles pairing of Ryan and Jordan relished the opportunity to play in another IDBL junior championship having entered in the U 15's two seasons ago. Unfortunately this year was not meant to be and they were outplayed by the other tough doubles partnerships on the day.
There was success for the U 18 girls with Patricia Kou and Theresa Chung winning the doubles event. This was just the start for Patricia as she secured a hat-trick of titles for the second successive season!!
We were guaranteed a win in the mixed event with both Patricia and Theresa battling it out for the title along with their mixed partners. In a closely contested match Patricia and her partner Ben Bennett-Day (stowmarket) triumped over Theresa and Craig Newcombe (stowmarket).
Patricia also proved to be too strong in the singles even where she won all of ther games!
Congratulations and well done to all of the players who entered the tournament!!
