Phoebe Mitchell from Rainford finished third in the 9 & Under Singles whilst Rebecca Duffy won the consolation draw in the 12 & Unders.
Jordan Hall from Oldham dominated the older events with victories in both the 16 and 18 & Under events. There was Southport success in the girl’s events with Molly O’Donughue winning the 12 & Under and Elise Bond winning the 14 & Unders. In the 10 & Unders, Shami Tekeste from Manchester won the girl’s competition whilst Jake Bradshaw from Widnes won the boys.
