The Ipswich Junior Open, hosted by Ipswich Sports Club and Martlesham Leisure has lived up to its reputation as the best junior tournament in the country. Held over the weekend of Friday Feb 2 to Sunday Feb 4 almost 250 juniors from all over England took part, with over 50 players on reserve lists for events that had to be capped to keep the number of matches down to 500. 


Thanks to sterling efforts of the organising teams at Ipswich, headed by Emily Ison, and Martlesham, headed by Karen Turmel, the whole event ran to schedule with first matches at 4.30 on Friday and 8.30 on Saturday and Sunday and VERY late evenings. 


The standard of play was high, as it should be for an event that was compulsory for any junior hoping to play for England. All the draws, with every match result, are available through the event webpage - However we should highlight two Suffolk Champions - Lucy Turmel at U19 and Emma Bartley at U15.
