Bronze medals at Warwick Bronze

Ten Cornish U17 players made the long journey to Warwick to take part in the Warwick U17 Bronze tournament on the 13th November. There were 86 boys and 47 girls taking part throughout the day. The Cornish players were: Abi Logg, Beth Wotton, Chris Cooper, Chris Grout, Kris Jasper, Christian Jasper, Kynan Clarke, Tony Marshall, James Gallagher & Sam Spencer

In the boys doubles Kris & Christian Jasper were the only Cornish pair to come through their box. They won their next match 24-22 only to be knocked out in the semi-final by the eventual winners.

In the singles all 10 players won at least one game in the group stages. Kris Jasper and Sam Spencer both won their boxes comfortably. Kris lost in the last 16 to a player from Middlesex 21-17. Sam made it to the quarter finals where he came from 15-19 down to win 21-19 to beat a Staffordshire player. In the semis he went down to the Wiltshire number 1 in a fantastic game 21-19.

Then followed the long trip home.

Well done to Sam, Kris & Christian and all the players who took part.
