Day 3 Report
Things didn’t go right to plan in the first team matches. The boys (Conor, Alex and Lewis) lost to France C in a very fast time. The boys couldn’t get close to the French players and each set saw a huge gap. It wasn’t lack of effort but everything seemed to go the French teams way.
The girls had a very close match against Germany but the same score of 0-3 sat on the scoreboard at the end. Angharad (1-3), Charlotte (1-3) and Megan (0-3) tried their best but lost the close sets too often.
In the afternoon match versus England Lewis Williams lost out to Sam Walker. Lewis Gray then beat Alex Prosser close before Conor Edwards saw a 5-2 lead in the 5th set vanish against Igor Morais to give England the 3-0 win.
Day 2 Report
With Angharad and Charlotte unable to play in the consolation events due to them reaching round 1 of the main draw, it was up to Chloe, Megan, Lewis, Conor and Alex to produce some needed results.
All 7 players were in action today in the individual events and 2 players made it through to the knockout stages
Charlotte Carey and Angharad Phillips made it into the last 32 but couldn't progress any further. Charlotte lost to Mittelham (cadet European Champion 2011) of Germany 4-0 and Angharad lost to Imamura also of Germany 4-1.
