Players from the Redbridge Sports centre, continue to collect medals at both local and national tournaments. At the Billericay 2* tournament, Advay Zore dominated the U11 boys singles and won gold. He moved up to U13 in the boys doubles and again won gold. Jada McEwan opened her medal count for the season, winning gold in the U17 girls singles. Redbridge players completed the U17 singles clean sweep when Varun Vijay Kumar won gold in the boys singles and he paired up with Kiishan Jeyanayagam to collect silver in the boys doubles.
Sajan Senthuran went to the Swindon Stars u11 tournament and justified his number one seeding in the boys doubles. Pairing up with Hampshire’s Yarik Lewis, the boys won gold dropping only one set throughout the tournament. Senthuran battled his way to the semi-final in the boys singles without dropping a set but found fellow Essex player Vihaan Keshava Murthy too strong and he had to settle for a silver. Senthuran continued winning medals at the Suffolk u13 Bronze, collecting gold in the boys singles and a silver in the boys doubles with fellow Redbridge player Rayyan Asif. Neha Kavalam opened her medal account for the season with a very good performance in the girls singles at the Suffolk event, collecting a silver. Tanishka Gavade lost to Kavalam in the semi-final and added a bronze to her season’s tally. Not to be out done by his sister, Gavade’s twin brother Rajvardhan won two bronze medals; one in the boys doubles and the other in the boys singles consolation event.
Rhea Ramakrishnan added to her impressive medal tally with two at the Kent u15 Silver. Her run in the singles took her to the semi-final where she collected a bronze medal. Pairing up with the girls singles winner, Amelia Ngooi, Ramakrishnan won gold in the girls doubles and only dropped one set in the process.
Liam Purton’s good run in boys doubles events continued with a bronze at the Kent u17 Silver. Puton and partner Nadeem Dalvi secured their semi-final slot without dropping a set but found Ethan Hoskin and Luke Hoult too strong, losing in three. Purton went one better at the Suffolk u19 Bronze where he paired up with fellow Essex player Ben Calder to collect silver.
Gopika Leneesh justified her second seeding in the girls singles at the recent Berkshire U15 Silver tournament. 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
