Under-18s claim indoor title

Chigwell School’s under-18s now hold both the Essex indoor and outdoor titles after their victory in the indoor competition, a feat never accomplished before.

Alice Melvin, an England Under-17 player, was in fine form as the Chigwell girls went throughout the day undefeated.

And they will now go on to represent the county at the East of England regional stage at St Albans, with coach Miranda Baldwin saying: “This is a fantastic achievement for the girls and I am so proud of them.

“To win both county tournaments this season is an outstanding accomplishment and a true credit to the whole squad’s hard work and commitment throughout the season.”
