Photos of this tournament from start to finish have now been uploaded.
Based on the results from the preliminary rounds of 8 seeded groups of six, all the players were allocated into three bands for the Knock-out stages of the Competition and the Finalists and Semi-Finalists won prizes accordingly. In Band 3, it was good to see another girl winner, Emma Ranson, who beat Jacob Rose 3 - 1. Aarav Shah (Urban) beat Awais Ansar (London Academy) in three games in an all-North London Band 2 Final. The top Band 1 Final was closely fought out between Francesco Bonato and leading BATTS player, Ralph Pattison. First blood went to Bonato 11 - 9, and the second game was a strenuous 13 - 11, eventually won by Pattison. Bonato came back strongly in the following game, which he won 11 - 3, and with momentum on his side, toughed it out to win the decisive game 11 - 8. A great Final indeed to round off yet another thoroughly enjoyable Tournament in Harlow.
