    These events are acknowledged as being one level below the English Satellite tournaments.

    There has been a good range of entries - both local club players and others from Devon,Guernsey, North Wales and Manchester.

    Final numbers are:

    As part of their 1yr development plans the Welsh Junior squad players have been encouraged to enter these series of tournaments which is great to see.
