Anna Hursey defeated fourth seed Mollie Patterson to finish top of Group 4. Mollie, now in the bottom half of the knockout, found Group 8 winner Megan Gidney in good form and was beaten 3-1. Megan’s progress came to an end in the quarter-finals, where she lost 3-1 to second seed Charlotte Bardsley. Jasmin Wong (Seeded 3) was to be Charlotte’s semi-final opponent but only after Jasmin had beaten Danielle Kelly in a very tight five-setter.

Charlotte eased into the final with a 3-1 over Jasmin. In the top half of the draw, local girl Bhavika Mistry reached the semi-finals with a 3-0 defeat of Anna Hursey. Bhavika’s opponent would be top seed Denise Payet, who had reached the same stage without dropping a leg. This pattern continued, with Denise moving into the final with a 3-0 win.

In the final, Charlotte took the first game but Denise fought back, taking the next three and securing the Cadet title.
