Elena Baltacha Mini-Red Series (Event 3)
Sunday 21 March 2015
The third qualifying event in the Elena Baltacha Mini-Red Series took place on Sunday 15 March 2015 at the home of the Academy here in Ipswich.
In the Girls tournament, it was eventually third time lucky for EBAT player, Alana Bristow, who put the disappointment of losing in the final of the last two EBAT Mini-Red Tournaments to secure a stage title with victory over Imogen Mackender.
Great performances also from Elena Fairweather & Nicole King, who both reached the Semi-Final stage for the first time.
Winner: Alana Bristow (EBAT)
Runner-Up: Imogen McKender (EBAT)
3rd Place: Elena Fairweather (EBAT)
4th Place: Nicole King (EBAT)
Girls Winner - Alana Bristow
Girls Runner-up - Imogen Mackender
In the boys event, after some tough group phase matches we were down to the last 8 with both Lewis Hind & George Last making it through to be joined by fellow EBAT player, Elliott Thomas. Never easy at this stage of the tournament with the top 2 players from each group progressing through to the ¼ finals. Elliott progressed through to face Ollie Van-Slooten in the first Semi-Final, whilst Reggie Edwards took on Thomas Argeles-Stuart. Not to be today for both Elliott and Thomas, with Elliott eventually finishing 3rd, with Thomas 4th. Great performances from both Reggie & Ollie in the final with Reggie eventually coming out on top to claim his first EBAT title.
Winner: Reggie Edwards
Runner-Up: Ollie Van-Slooten
3rd Place: Elliott Thomas (EBAT)
4th Place: Thomas Argeles-Stuart
Boys Winner - Reggie Edwards

A great tournament and great support, as always from all the parents & players which is great to see.
We look forward to the 4th event in the series which takes place on Sunday 19 April 2015.
