Emma Sheen (left) won both events in Crawley

The Sussex circuit tournaments completed the third of this year’s tournaments on Saturday 4th Feb alongside the county matches at K2 Crawley. Thirty-Four kids competed for medal positions in Band A and B events in both the morning and afternoon while 10 of their county team mates competed in the cadet county championships.

After Emma Sheen’s impressive display at the recent cadet county premier championships where Sussex were crowned National champions she proved her outstanding potential to demolish all competition before her without losing a set all day. Emma from Brighton won both band A events; morning and afternoon in impressive style. In the morning second place went to Sam Dallas after beating Ben Worley (both from Horsham) who came third by three game to one. In the afternoon third place went to David Poole who dropped just the one match against Emma. There was a close count back situation between Alex Widdowson, Ollie Field and Rory Fraser with Alex picking up third place on sets ratios.

The morning B band session saw Sean Worley victorious in every match dropping just one set all morning against Peter Lambert who picked up second spot after winning his last match 3-2 in a close encounter with Lauren Pound. Third place went to Ollie Field who won the same number of matches as Peter but lost due to the fact that he dropped his match against Peter.

The afternoon session in Band B was another one-sided affair for the victor Ben Taylor who also won all his matches 3-0 whilst at the same time representing the county for the third team. Second place again went to Peter Lambert and third to Roddy McGillivray.

The matches were all played in excellent spirit for which I thank all the players and I would also like to express thanks to all those that helped set up and clear down.
