World Junior Championships

I was recently selected to represent England at the U19 World Junior Championships in Indonesia. I am really happy to have been picked and I'm looking forward to playing competitors from Asian countries and to get some good experience.

Senior Nationals

At the weekend I competed in the senior national championships with both my junior partners. We were very unlucky in our level doubles draw as we had to play England's top women's doubles pair in the first round, however we managed to get 14 and 8 so we were quite pleased with our scores. We got to the quarter finals of the mixed doubles which was a great result for us as we are only 15 and 16, but ended up losing to another England pair who are 2 years older.

Masters vs Juniors

Last Sunday down in Milton Keynes at the National Badminton Centre, I took part in a charity day in which the England Juniors from U19 to U17, played loads of matches against ex-England players. It was a really useful day, as we all got feedback from former Commonwealth and Olympians which was extremely helpful. Overall, everyone really enjoyed it and I got to play some really experienced players in both mixed and doubles.

Bulgarian Senior Open

After the junior I played the senior tournament. In our first mixed game, we played an athlete ranked 12th in the world at doubles who also went to the 2016 Olympics, expecting to come out with a loss. We played at a really high level and managed to come out with the best win of my career so far, the scores being 21-19, 21-11. We won the next round against the Turkish which meant we were in the quarter-finals, however we couldn't quite get the win this time but super happy with our results.

U19 Bulgarian Junior

I've just come back from Bulgaria. First I played the junior tournament where we won our first round in doubles against an Iranian pair, and then had to play a Turkish pair in the second. We lost the first set, and then won the second and unfortunately, we lost by just 2 points in the third and the score ended up being 19-21 to the Turkish. Gutting loss but they went through to win a silver medal so very pleased with our performance. We lost our first mixed game very closely in 3, 21-19, 19-21, 17-21, but another good performance.

Superseries Tennis Finals

Yesterday I went to the Tennis School Games Super-Series finals to watch and talk to the children competing in it. The standard was amazing and they were all lovely to speak to. Really enjoyed seeing the competitive environment in which these young players play and was really nice to hand out medals to them at the end.

U17 6 Nations

I got back from this tournament in Denmark, on Sunday and I've come away with a gold in the mixed doubles and a silver medal in the team event! This was a brilliant result for me as some of the players we beat along the way are older than me and we weren't expected to win. Also a great outcome in the team event, where we beat all countries apart from Denmark.

U19 Europeans Result

Got back from France a couple of weeks ago now and really pleased with how I did there. I got to the last 16 of both mixed and level doubles nearly taking out the no.1 and no.5 seeds in the tournament. We also came third in the team event losing to France in the semi finals. Brilliant result for all of us in the team and me in the individual as I'm still 3 years young.

U19 Junior Europeans

A few weeks ago I found out that I had been selected to play in the U19 European Junior Championships. I'm so pleased to have been picked for this as I'm still 15 and didn't expect to get into the team - will be a really good experience competing against older international players again, looking forward to it.

U19 National Championships

A couple of weeks ago, I competed in the U19 National Championships. It wasn't my actual age group so I was competing within lots of other England players who are older than me. My doubles partner Grace, and I got to the semi finals of the women's doubles losing to the eventual winners 12-21 20-22. Coming out with a bronze medal with a partner who I've only been playing with for 3 months was a great outcome, especially as it was at Nationals.

U19 Derby Gold

About a week ago, I played an U19 gold tournament. David and I won the mixed doubles, with somebody pulling out before we played the final due to injury. In girls doubles, me and Grace won the doubles beating 2 older England pairs in the semi final, and a fairly comfortable score in the final of 21-16 and 21-13.

Iceland IS

Had an amazing week at the Iceland International Senior tournament, me and my mixed partner Steven, who I've never played with before, beat one of the top 2 mixed pairs in England for U19 on the way to the final, where we lost to the other top U19 English pair in 3 sets. In doubles, Grace and I also beat one of the top pairs in England on the way to the final. We lost to a Malaysian pair who were both once in the top 60 in the world, 21-6, 21-16.

Estonia IS

This was a senior international tournament which was very good for experience and I got to watch some of the top upcoming players play too. We won 2 mixed games,then unfortunately lost in the next round and won 1 doubles game before losing the next. Although it wasn't an amazing result I am still happy with my performance.

National Badminton League

Had an amazing opportunity this week to play in NBL. I played against 2 senior international players and my partner and I took them to 5 sets. We had a match point but unfortunately couldn't take it and ended up losing 5-3 in the fifth which was a brilliant result considering I'm still only 15.

U19 Milton Keynes Gold

Had a great tournament in Milton Keynes a few weeks ago with doubles partner Grace King from Derby. In only our second tournament together we managed to win gold in the girls doubles, Grace is currently U18 and I'm U17 so both still young yet. Mixed didn't quite go my way this time but just need to keep focussing on being consistent there. Got a few internationals coming up so will just continue to keep working hard!

National Badminton League

I have recently been signed to the Loughborough Lightning National Badminton League team in the last week! I am really looking forward to the experience I'll get from watching some of the other top class badminton players from England playing in the matches, and hopefully one day being able to play in it myself.

Senior Middlesex Gold continued

We played the No.5 seeds in the quarter finals and these were also a pair we shouldn't have beaten. We won in 3 sets, meaning we were in the semi finals. We had to play the No.3 seeds in the semi final who were again, very strong. We beat these in 2 sets, both very comfortably and we were overjoyed to reach the final. We knew we could win it but we also could've lost it just as equally. We took gold and won in 2 sets, fairly close. We're both still amazed and undeniably happy about the result.

Senior Middlesex Gold

Last weekend, Rory and I, my partner who I'd never played with before, competed in the Senior Gold tournament in Middlesex. These are the best senior tournaments you can get in England, so we weren't even expected to win one game. We won our first one quite comfortably but next round were up against ex-England player Ben Stawski and his partner who were no.2 seed. We very, very unexpectedly beat these in 3 sets making this one of our best wins ever.

U17 Danish Cup

Last week I went to an U17 tournament in Denmark. As an U16 there was no expectation. My mixed partner and I won our first and second round matches then a tight quarter final against a really strong pair from England. The semi's were against a Danish pair which we again won in three sets, through to the final! In the final we had to play two of the best players in Europe for their age. We gave it our all and got amazing scores, closely losing the first 23-21 and then losing the second to 17. Overall, great tournament!
