Bedford Prep School enjoyed another successful day at the IAPS National Finals as Joshua Stewart and Josha Mital improved on their U11 title by winning the U13 title as U12’s. Equally impressive was that the other U13 pair of Max Pearson and Vedant Somal who are also both in Y7 reached the final but lost in straight sets to Joshua and Josha.
Both pairings had unbeaten runs on the way to the final winning all five of their group games and then following up these impressive performances with good wins in both the quarter and semi finals as they beat York House, Davenies, Downsend and Aldwickbury.
This is a superb achievement and all four boys will be back next year to defend the title as Y8’s.
Our U11 pairing of Shaun Thomas and Alex Lamb managed to reach the semi final after an excellent win in the quarters to York House showing great determination to win 21-19. The other U11 pairing of Dyan French and Sammy Inman who are both Y4 also enjoyed themselves; winning many points and improving with every game, which is fantastic as they have another two years of entering the U11 competition.
