Four National Champions Crowned From Warwickshire

2023 Champions

Four juniors from Warwickshire were crowned national champions at the English Junior Championship Finals as the tournament drew to a close at St George's Hill.

It was an impressive haul for Warwickshire-based players, while there were also two winners each from Surrey and Sussex on a finals day which saw a couple of upsets and history made.

Top seeds in the U19s tournaments, Torrie Malik (Sussex) scooped her sixth English Junior Championships crown and Jonah Bryant (Sussex) earned his seventh. They got the better of [2] Asia Harris (Yorks) and [2] Yusuf Sheikh (Essex), respectively.

Torrie Malik (Sussex) and Jonah Bryant (Sussex)

Malik raced into a two-game lead when she won 11-5 and 11-7 before Harris pulled one back. However, Malik got back on track in the fourth to close the match out and seal the sixth junior title of her fledgling career.

It was a comfortable victory for Bryant to clock up his seventh junior title, cruising past Sheikh 3-0: 11-5, 11-7, 11-2.

One of the upsets came in the Girls U17 final, as [2] Charlie McCrone (Lancs) came from two games down to topple top seed [1] Emily Coulcher-Porter (Bucks) 3-2 to bag her fourth EJC title.

Coulcher-Porter, who hadn’t dropped a single game prior to the final, looked to continue her perfect streak when she took a commanding two-game lead, winning 11-7 and 11-8.

McCrone, who had a hat-trick of a EJC crowns under her belt going into this year’s event, responded magnificently as she overturned the deficit to take the match with 11-9, 11-4, 11-7 victories to add a fourth national title.

Elsewhere in the Boys U17 final, No.1 seed Alex Broadbridge (Hants) secured his third EJC title as he downed [2] Dylan Roberts of Kent in straight games.

The second surprise result saw [2] Ali Khalil (Warwicks) upset the odds to defeat the top seed in the Boys U13 final Zack Greengrass of Sussex to become national champion.

Khalil produced an excellent performance to see off the No.1 seed 3-0: 11-6, 11-8, 11-9 as he joined McCrone in beating a top seed to lift the trophy.

Meanwhile, in the Girls U13 decider, top seed Ameerah Ismail (Warwicks) dispatched [2] Phoebe Griffiths (Ham) in straight games to add an EJC title to her BJC 2022 success, where she also defeated Griffiths to that crown.

[1] Thomas Earwicker (Surrey) became the first-ever U9 English Junior champion after he comfortably beat [2] James Swinden (Yorks) 3-0: 11-2, 11-9, 11-7 to take the title.
[1] Maya Goel of Surrey held off a strong fightback from [3/4] Rida Ali (Sussex) to lift the Girls U11 crown, with the decider going the distance.

Goel took the first two games 11-3 and 11-7 but Ali, who had taken out the No.2 seed yesterday to reach the final, stormed back to level the match with 11-9 and 11-3 wins. However, Goel rose to the occasion in the decider, taking the game 11-6.

In the battle of the brothers in the Boys U11 final, it was Finley Brown who got the better of Oscar, coming from one game down to win 3-1.

Finley, who defeated his twin brother Oscar in the British Junior Championships 2022 final, lost the first 11-5 before he won the next three games 11-8, 14-12, 11-6.

The top seed in the Girls U15 competition, Mariam Eissa (Warwicks) landed her fourth EJC title as she swept aside [2] Reka Kemescei (Sussex) 14-12, 11-8, 11-6.

In the Boys U15 final, [1] Ismail Khalil (Warwicks) produced a dominant display to claim the title, defeating [2] George Griffiths (Ham) 3-0: 11-6, 11-3, 11-3.
