A good week in Bath for our players

A busy week at the Grade 2 in Bath for our players; Piers Holt, Camille Anderson and Luke Stevenson. A tough lost for Piers as he lost in the u14′s qualifying. Camille battled well through the qualies and lost in the first round of main draw. A very good week though for Luke as he reached the semi finals. A good achievement for Luke as he continues to work towards his targets.
Congratulations to them all for their work ethic.
