Leneesh lost to the number one seed, Cornwall’s Joanna Vyvyan, before going on to win gold in the girls doubles with fellow Redbridge player Sanya Nayeck. The girls were seeded number one and did not drop a set as they won their way to gold.
Rayyan Asif and Sajan Senthuran paired up to take part in the Middlesex U13 Bronze. The boys were seeded number 2 at the Southall event and lost in the final to collect a silver medal each.
Advay Zore opened his medal account for the season with a bronze medal at the Webber u11 tournament. Eight year old Zore put up a strong performance and this won’t be his last medal this season.
Rhea Ramakrishnan took her medal tally to ten for the season with two medals at the Leicestershire U15 bronze tournament. Ramakrishnan lost 22-20 in the semi-final of the girls singles to the eventual winner, Warwickshire’s Sana Sibal. Pairing up with Nottinghamshire’s Matilda Franklin, Ramakrishnan went one better and collected a silver in the girls doubles.
The coming weekend, 17th and 18Th of November, sees Ramakrishnan competing at the Gloucester U15 gold and Nayeck and Leneesh, along with Nikhil Nayeck and Atharva Zore playing at the Kent U15 Silver
Rhea Ramakrishnan added two more medals to her season’s haul at the Worcestershire U15 bronze tournament. The much improved Ramakrishnan added her seventh medal of the season in the girl’s singles where she dominated her opponents in the group stage before running out of steam against Berkshire’s Anuva Padhy, collecting a bronze medal for losing in the semi-final. Ramakrishnan was seeded 2 in the girls’ doubles when she paired up with Nottingham’s Matlida Franklin. They managed to win their group, despite losing a close game against Maria Mitchell and Yashica Racharia. The pair grew in confidence and won their semi-final against Padhy and Srishti Saravana to set up a final with the number one seeds Chloe Barton and Aneka Premanand. Ramakrishnan and Franklin dominated the final and ran out 21-12 winners, taking Ramakrishnan’s seasons tally to 8.
