12th August - County Novice Cadet Events
At the County AGM there was a discussion on how to develop young players in Sussex other than within Club and County Coaching environments. A proposal was presented for the running of a number of "Novice" Tournament closed to Sussex and in bands. It was the view that this would require less resource than the previously suggested County U11/U13 Competition and would enable Cadets to play others with similar ability. The suggestion made that a definition of a "Beginner" or "Novice" being to ability to hold rallies, awareness of the rules and can serve. Please see a copy of the paper presented "Developing Young Players in Sussex" and it was recognised that they would be of minimal charge with entry fees enabling break-even. The dates provisionally agreed were the 8th October (Triangle Leisure Centre) 19th November (South West Sussex), 21st January (Hastings) and 18th February (Triangle Leisure Centre). At the moment of writing it is possible that the 8th October may change to the 15th October.
12th August 2022 - Women and Girls 1 Star Event 2nd July - Results
Thanks to the hard work of Sally Hughes in obtaining funding from TTE and much communication and energy she has achieved in creating the very first Women and Girls 1 Star Tournament to be approved by TTE. It was held at the Triangle Leisure Centre on the 2nd July and there were 6 events - Under 21, Over 21 and Open with consolation events for each. There was a good standard with some 30 plus players and it was held under the County Banner with funds ring-fenced. Sussex Players were well represented and Jodie Morris from Sussex won the Under 21 Event. Ewelina Sychta won both the Over 21 and Open. There was also a Sportswomen Award for Karin Kunrath.

12th August - eBatt/Global University Systems 1 Star 7th August - Results
This event was held at the Triangle Leisure Centre, Burgess Hill on the 7th August and although only a 1 Star Event it attracted a very strong list of high-ranking players. Perhaps the prize money on offer had something to do with it - £500 for the winner, £250 for Runner Up and £100 losing semi-finalists. Even the Consolation Event had prize money with the winner receiving £100 and Runner Up £50. The format was groups of 4 in the Open with further groups of 4 before the main draws. It was a Mixed Open Singles only with the sponsorship from eBatt and Global University Systems and the winner was Grigory Vlasov with the Runner Up Chris Doran. Report and videos of the some of the key matches can be found on the following link along with the results of the groups and main/consolation draws:
