Norfolk duo Georgia Moyes and Kathryn Adamson come away with golds

Norfolk's Kathryn Adamson and Georgia Moyes came away from the Hatfield U17 BE Bronze tournament with two well-deserved gold medals.

Playing some of their best doubles of the season, the girls progressed through the group stage with an excellent 21-17 victory over the established Kent pair of Barnes-Rolf and White and then faced the quality Surrey pairing of Clark and Raftis in the final, winning 21-16.

A few days later Kathryn entered her first silver tournament of the season, following her recent upgrade from bronze, and won a bronze in the doubles, partnered by Bernice Dore from Dorset.

Earlier in the week, Moyes and Lauren Mortimer, also from Norfolk, played in the Hatfield U15 BE Bronze tournament and came away with bronze medals, having just lost out in the semi-finals, to the eventual winners from Surrey, Ip and Sivakumaran. To complete an excellent week for the Norfolk girls, Georgia also progressed to the semi-finals, to win her second bronze of the day, following another narrow defeat to the tournament winner Ciara Linehan from Northants.

• The county U14s were in Harlow for the Eastern Region Team Tournament. Their first opponents were a strong Hertfordshire side, who came out on top 5-2. Norfolk's wins came from Lauren Mortimer in the singles and Robbie Hobson and Sean Lott in the doubles.

Next up were Essex who were, again, too hot to handle, emerging 5-2 winners, with Hobson and Mortimer picking up Norfolk's mixed and Mortimer winning her singles. George Vickers and Lott were unlucky to lose in three sets.

Norfolk beat Suffolk 4-3. Hobson and Mortimer and Lott and Atti Harrison won two of the three mixed. The singles were shared with Mortimer again coming out on top, with Vickers and Hobson comfortably winning their doubles.
