Gopika Leneesh justified her second seeding in the girls’ singles at the Berkshire under-15 silver tournament.

Leneesh lost to the number one seed, Cornwall’s Joanna Vyvyan, but won gold in the doubles with fellow Redbridge player Sanya Nayeck as the top seeds did not drop a set all day.

Rayyan Asif and Sajan Senthuran paired up to bag silver in the Middlesex under-13 bronze after losing in the final at the Southall event.

Eight-year-old Advay Zore opened his account for the season with a bronze at the Webber under-11 tournament, while Rhea Ramakrishnan took her medal tally for the season to 10 with two medals at the Leicestershire under-15 bronze tournament.

Ramakrishnan lost 22-20 in the semi-final of the girls’ singles to the eventual winner, Warwickshire’s Sana Sibal.

But after pairing up with Nottinghamshire’s Matilda Franklin, Ramakrishnan went one better and collected silver in the girls’ doubles.

This weekend will see Ramakrishnan compete at the Gloucester under-15 gold event, while Nayeck and Leneesh, along with Nikhil Nayeck and Zore, will all play at the Kent under-15 Silver tournament.
