There were 4 players in the U13 so it was 1 box played as a round robin. This was won by Connor Banfield from Gillingham Primary with Joshua Hockey from Hambridge Primary as runner up.

The U17’s had 1 box of 5 players so it was a round robin. Neo Katz from Mendip 6th won with Szymon Frychel from King Arthur's as runner up.

Well done to all players. It was great to see such energy, good sportsmanship and brilliant rallies from all the players.
