Under-11 Girls

Another top seed was victorious as Sophie Chiang defeated fifth seed Erin Green to take the title.

The Essex youngster had to fight for a 3-0 win which was less straightforward than at first glance, particularly in the first, before taking it 13-11, 11-8, 11-6.

Chiang was also pushed in the quarter finals, when she came from behind to defeat second seed Alana Mansfield – who had surprisingly finished runner-up in her group – 3-1 (8-11, 11-9, 11-1, 11-5). She then defeated fourth-ranked Lola McGhee in the semi-finals.

Green, who had not lost a game before the final, overcame third seed Amy Marriott in the last eight and then booked her final place by beating Lucy Vernon.

Sophie, aged 10, said: “I feel very happy. I wanted to keep calm and enjoy the day and even when I was losing I was quite calm and just did my stuff.”

Under-13 Girls

Amelia Chan took the title, coming from 2-0 down in the semi-finals and then sinking top seed Jasmin Wong in a close final.

The second seed, from Enfield, had been on the verge of elimination as she trailed 2-0 to sixth seed Gemma Kerr in the semi-finals before storming back to win 3-2 (13-15, 8-11, 11-8, 11-7, 11-5).

And the final too was a compelling battle, with Chan shading it 3-1 (17-15, 5-11, 15-13, 11-8) against the top seed.

Earlier, Chan had beaten her namesake Ruby in three in the quarter-finals, while Wong’s path to the final had seen her defeat Nicole Scott 3-0 in the quarters and Darcie Proud 3-1 in the semis.

Amelia said: “I’m very happy. I thought I was going to lose in the semi-final but I calmed down a bit and came back.
