A superb effort by Everyball's Amelie Brooks who won through to the finals of the Girls 12&U National Championships in Bournemouth today.
7th seed Amelie beat 2nd seed Abby Kelliher 2-6 6-2 6-1 in the semi-final to avenge two earlier losses this year to Abby in a show of determined power hitting and brave defending.
Amelie will play top seed Mingge Xu in tomorrow's final at 11.30am at the West Hants Club.
Fantastic job Amelie.
Well done also to Joel Good and Millie Day on their efforts at Nationals this year. Both fell at the first hurdle but will no doubt be back even stronger next year.
Sadly, Joel leaves us at Everyball to go the Millfield School for 6th form and we wish him all the very best in this and look forward to seeing him back at Halton during the holidays! He has been at Halton since he was a Mini Red player and has been a huge asset to us and a wonderful servant to the club, showing great commitment to our junior and adult teams and representing Everyball with distinction in many national competitions through the years. You'll be sorely missed Joel but will always be an 'Everyballer'.
