Bronze Medal for Chloe & George
On 23rd November Chloe, George, Olly and coach Matt Ware travelled to Nottingham for the Bucs Individuals.
Chloe Thomas & George Downing were seeded 16th. Played straight knockout rounds and beat Nottingham 3-0 (Last 64) in the initial round and then continued to dominant all the next rounds winning every match 3-0 to reach the Semi-finals. They faced the NO1 seeds from Nottingham who were just too strong and unfortunately losing 3-0 but were very proud of reaching this stage and taking a Bronze medal.
George and Olly made it to the last 32 where they lost to a strong Nottingham team 3-1
George Downing (9th seed) – Won his group on the Saturday and on Sunday in knockout stages made it to last 32 where he lost to the 5th seed.
Olly Hack – Great opportunity for Olly as this was the first time in BUCS Individuals, he qualified top of his group and made it 2nd round on the knock out stages.
Chloe Thomas (10th seed) – Comfortably won her group and then made it to the Quarter Finals where she faced the No2 seed from Nottingham. Chloe went 2-0 down but came back to 2-1 then losing in the 4th set 11-8.
Over all the Bournemouth team had a good weekend and another great experience, thank you to Matt Ware for his support during the event and to SportBU for financing and arranging everything.
