UK Girls ECF finals: Howell’s does the double

At the ECF Girls national finals, held in St Catherine’s, Bramley, on 2-3 April, Howell’s won the under 19 and under 11 titles.

In the eight team, all-play-all final, every member of the under 11 team - Venetia Sivarajasingam, Susanna Fraser and Nayana Kalavala – won all seven of their matches, giving them a perfect 21/21. In the under 19s, the winning margin was far closer. Howell’s team, comprising Alyssa Wang, Shayanna Sivarajasingam and Neya Govindaraj, scored 17/21, just half a point ahead of North London Collegiate.
