Next week marks the beginning of a busy few days for some of the English international cadets as Sam Mabey, Daniel Lawrence and Maria Tsaptsinos will all be competing in both Poland and Holland in the space of just ten days.
The task begins with the Polish Junior and Cadet Open where George Downing has been given his chance to represent England again/for the first time after his impressive form over the last 12 months has merited his place on the trip to Europe.

The attention then turns to the Netherlands for the Cadet 6 Nations tournament in Zwolle that was won last year by Tin-Tin.
