Gwent and Wrexham Junior Shuttle


The BW Junior Shuttle Circuit was action packed last weekend with tournaments being played in both Wrexham and Gwent.

The Gwent Shuttle took place at the new Ebbw Vale L.C. Entries were high at 70 with many players travelling from across the border in order to take part in the competition. The event attracted players from Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Cheshire, as well as many Welsh Counties.

The U11 event saw an all Hereford final in the boys’ singles with Josh Phillips beating club mate Max Williams in a close 3 set final. Both players then went on to take the doubles title too. In the girls' singles Lydia Morris (Abergavenny) won the singles event comfortably.

The U13 boys singles was won by Chad Warren from Hereford. Annabelle Bellis (Cheshire) won the girls’ singles and the doubles was won by Abergavenny duo Sam Jones and Will Summors.

The U15 age group had the biggest entry and strongest standard with 20 in the boys' singles alone. Jamie Pearcey from Gloucester beat Brandon Adams Hereford in a high quality final. The girls' event saw a close 3 set final between Mhairi McGill (Hereford) and Isobel Adams (Abersychan). Mhairi came out on top winning 15-11, 12-15, 15-9. The boys' doubles was won by Will McGill and Brandon Adams (Hereford) and the girls’ doubles by Bethany Jones (Abergavenny) and Isobel Adams.

In the U17 age group Cameron Pearcey (Gloucester) followed in his brother's footsteps to win the U17 boys' singles title narrowly defeating Matt Reynolds (Abergavenny) 15-13, 15-12. Olivia Samuels (Abersychan) took the girls' singles then teamed up with her cousin Isobel Adams to win the doubles.

The eight courts made for lots of play with a 5.30pm finish! Well done everyone!
