This year’s U11-14 National Championships contains all but one of the victorious individuals from 2012 as the cream of the cadet crop heads to the Tipton Sports Academy on 1-2nd June 2013.
With only Tin-Tin Ho absent, as she has now moved out of the age group, the field is led by 2012 Double Champion Denise Payet who won both the Under-11 Girls’ Singles and Under-12 Girls’ Singles.
This year her sights will be set on the Under-12s and Under-13s, where she is the top seed, while she begins as second seed in the hotly-contested Under-14s. Alongside Payet will be top seed Zahna Hall as well as Kate Cheer, Kate Nixon, Jane Li (U13 Champion), Megan Dillon, Imogen Barber and Amy Blagbrough, all of whom have a reasonable claim to be a title-contender.
In the boys’ singles Alec Ward will hope to defend his Under-14s title, although he’ll face stiff opposition as the fourth seed behind Tom Jarvis, Luke Savill and Hugo Pang (U13 Champion).
Also heading to Tipton will be 2012 winners Harry Dai (U11 Champion) and Alex Ramsden (U12 Champion) as the field looks set to impress across an action packed weekend next month.
