Over the weekend of the 17th & 18th January 2015 two of our Junior Members played for Kent in the Inter County Finals in Pontefract, Yokshire.
On Saturday Karishma Bansal played at No. 1 for the under 13’s in a round robin against Buckinghamshire, Lancashire and Yorkshire which led to Kent playing Yorkshire on Sunday in the final. Karishma’s opponent was the England No. 2 whom Karishma played a very close game with but was just beaten. The other two girls played very well but were also beaten giving Yorkshire a 3 – 0 victory.
In the under 19’s competition Kent played Surrey in the final with Yemaya Philips – Smith playing at No. 3. Yemaya played very well and won her tie 3 – 1. Amelia Henley and Gina Kennedy were the other two Kent players each winning their ties 3 – 0 giving the team a 3 – 0 win and Kent’s very first victory in the under 19’s girls competition.
Well done to all the Kent girls and particular congratulations to our Juniors who proved that we have some great players coming through the ranks.
