Pembs 2012 Junior Closed

The Pembrokeshire Closed Junior Tournament took place on Saturday December 1st with nearly forty players enjoying a good afternoon’s competitive matches. 

Although short on under 11’s, most age groups had at least a pool of four, with under 13 boys playing a pool of seven and getting lots of matches.  With Ben Richards and Luke Pierce “upgraded” from under 17’s after doing well in the Open series,  there was even an under 19 boys group played.  The most fiercely fought event was the under 17 girls where Jordan Hart’s nine year old sister Lowri joined in and more than held her own, to make up a thoroughly enjoyable contest between 8 girls. 

Jordan Hart (clearly feeling the December chill on her head!), kindly presented the medals and is pictured with the under 11 and under 13 girls winners – Eve, Katie, Jasmine, Eleanor and Chloe.  For all five it was their first ever tournament with some excellent skills shown and a promise of much more to come in future years.
