Alice win's Band 1 at the Bribar Guildford Open Grand Prix

Extract from E.T.T.A. Website

[The Women’s Band 1 competition was won by Alice Loveridge. The Guernsey player played with great feeling and composure. Her combination of heavy topspin attack with her strong work ethic and influenced by her newly imported German coach had too much consistency for finalist Sanja Clements. Alice had earlier outfought Melissa Wright whilst Sanja enjoyed a titanic five gamer against Sue Collier to reach the final.]

Result: Alice Loveridge beat Sanja Clements 11-6, 5-11, 12-10, 12-10.

Alice reached the final of the under 21 singles and the quarter final of the women's singles.

Garry Dodd had his best win to date in the men's open singles, beating England number 8 Damien Nicholls, to reach the last 16.
