Unseeded Kate Cheer of Sussex was the star of the day on day 2 of the National Under 11, 12,13,14 Championships in the excellent main hall of the Dome sports centre in Doncaster.

She started showing her promise by reaching the semi final of the Under 12 Girls event before going down in 4 games to No 3= seed Denise Payet from Middlesex . The path to this meeting included a 3-1 win for Kate over No 2 seed Grace Potter of Lincolnshire. A great performance in the under 12 event in the morning but more was to come in the Under 11 event in the afternoon.

A string of seeded players succumbed, a win over 3= seed Sophie Barlow from Cleveland was followed with a three straight game defeat of 2 seed Amy Blagbrough of Hampshire in the Semi Final. More was to come however as in a superbly competitive Final of the Under 11 Girls Kate reversed the result of the morning and was victorious over the No 1 seed  Denise Payet deuce in the fifth game.

All the other events went to form In the Under 12 Girls Final Jane Li of Essex was unstoppable winning in 4 sets over Denise Payet, the number 3= seed. The Under 12 Boys saw a dominant  performance from Tom Jarvis of Licolnshire, he defeated the Number 2 seed Luke Saville of Kent in a 4 game final.

The Under  11 Boys produced some outstandingly competitive games at the quarter final stage.  In the final Alex Ramsden of Northamptonshire, the number 1 seed, was just a little to clever in his variation of shot for James Smith of Kent but there were some superb rallies in this match too. Alex duly took the Under 11 Boys Championship in 5 games.
