On Saturday 3rd December we hosted our largest moderates Tournament yet with over 70 entrants! The Norfolk moderates tournament brings together players who have not played at senior county level before, with a wide range of players competing in singles, level and mixed doubles events.
We started the day with the Men’s Singles event. 8 players progressed from the group stage to reach the Quarter Finals; Lebon, Bale, Clarke, Thompson, Ridpath, Evans, Plaistow & Butler. The Plaistow vs Bale Quarter final set the bar high with a tightly contested 24-22, 21-23, 8-21 3 set thriller. The top 4 seeds then went head-to-head in the semi-finals with Freddie Clark and Charlie Bale moving forward winning their respective semi-finals in straight games against Lebon and Thompson. The final was a hard fought contest but Freddie proved too strong for Bale, winning the match in straight games and thus claiming the men’s singles title.
Winner: Freddie Clakre
Runner up: Charlie Bale
In the ladies singles we saw Banfield, Crombie-Ergen & White compete against each other in a round robin box. White started proceedings with a close 2-0 win over Banfield. Banfield then dispatched Crombie-Ergen, also 2-0. In the last match of the group when Crombie-Ergen took the first game 22-20 it looked like the event could be decided on points. However, White displayed impressive resilience to come back and win the next 2 sets to claim the title.
Winner: Connie White
Runner Up: Katie Banfield
The Men’s Doubles Group stage saw 24 pairs battle it out in 4 boxes to book a place in the semi-finals. Rumsey/Hudson topped group 1 with 5 straight wins. Box 2 was neck and neck with a 3 way tie between Narayan/Vashishat, Butler/Zhao & Clark/Wong with 4 wins each. After taking to the calculator Narayan/Vashishat proceeded on a point difference win. Ershandi/Loh cleanly won box 3 with 5 straight wins. In another tightly contested box, group 4 required a points tally to see Bhushan/Singh move forward with 4 wins.
The semi-finals hit the courts at the same time with 2 fast paced, exciting match-ups! Stewart Hudson/Stephan Rumsey defeated Anurag Singh/Bharat Bhushan 21-16, 21-10 and Sean Loh/Nicky Ershandi defeated Sameer Narayan/Mohit Vashishat 21-18, 15-21, 21-14. The final was just as thrilling, Loh/Ershandi took the first game 21-16 but Hudson/Rumsey weren’t going down without a fight, levelling proceedings at one set all with a 21-11 second game. Loh/Ershandi gave it everything in the third leaving it all on the court taking the title 2-1.
Winner: Sean Loh / Nicky Ershandi
