2nd February - East Sussex Schools TT Association - Individual Events - January 29th - Results

The East Sussex Schools Individual Events were held on Saturday 29th January at Patcham High run by Teresa Bennett. It was the first time that Teresa had run the Play-Off's on a weekend and there were less entries due to this but it did make it manageable with12 tables and 50 players and just the morning to get through it! There was a clash with an event being run by Rory Scott but venue dates were limited.

From St Andrews Prep, Samson Koo was seen as fab (Teresa's words) and beat Yaqub in semi final and Finley Aitken, so some good potential. Sadly some top seeds dropped out with COVID at the last minute. The results in full as follows:

Under 11 boys Winner Ryan Goodier St Luke’s and Runner up Samson Koo StAndrews Prep

Under 13 boys winner Daniel Caroe St Andrews Prep Runner Up Angus Priestly Tonner Dorothy Stringer 

Under 16 boys winner Harvey Sandwell Varndeanand Runner Up Leon Cain Varndean

Under 13 girls winner Kate Smith Patcham and Runner up Izzy Langridge Dorothy Stringer

Under 16 girls winner Georgie Hunter   Varndean and runner up Neve from Patcham
