JUNIOR BOYS TOP 10
JUNIOR BOYS UNDER 18 TOURNAMENT 2017
This year we changed the format of this event as a few of the Junior boys were unable to compete and there were more Cadets than usual filling the higher positions in the TT365 Ranking Lists. To attract the best players available we therefore decided to select the highest ranked players whether Juniors or Cadets and have one combined tournament. This meant increasing the customary Top 10 to a Top 14 which would then produce the Winner and Runner-up Under 18 and also the Winner and Runner-up Under 15 (the highest placed Cadets).
The results were as follows:
1. Sam Wilson (County Under 18 Champion)
2. Jacob Tattersall (County Under 18 Runner-up and County Under 15 Champion)
3. Abin Islam
4. Daniel Mann (County Under 15 Runner-up)
5. Alex Cochrane
6. Felix Bradbury
7. Manav Pandya
8. Jack Bain
9. Jacob Mortimer
10. Daniel Bain
11. Hubert Malenda.
12. Rishan Ganatra
13. Ansh Shah
14. Kavish Dodhia

JUNIOR BOYS TOP 10 2015
On 20 September 2015 the Junior Boys Top 10 was held at the Hindu Association's premises in Wellingborough for the first time and was won by Ben Tombs with Patryk Polanski Runner-Up.Although an unbeaten Ben Tombs justified his No 16 county ranking to win the Boys Top 10, he had to work hard to beat Patryk Polanski, currently ranked 76 places lower. The final score in Tombs favour was 12-10, 9-11, 11-9, 9-11, 11-7. Polanski was otherwise unbeaten, although taken the full distance by Mihir Mistry, before coming from behind to take the last two games 11-8, 11-8. Shivam Mistry lost to both Tombs and Polanski but won his remaining rubbers to finish a clear third.
Final positions: 1 Ben Tombs, 2 Patryk Polanski, 3 Shivam Mistry, 4 Rishan Patel, 5 Travis Holly, 6 Mihir Mistry, 7 Harvey Fowler, 8 Abin Islam, 9 Virat Patel, 10 Oliver Fowler.
