Bryant and Haworth capture 2024 English Junior U19 crowns

Sussex’s Jonah Bryant and Hampshire’s Amelie Haworth captured the BU19 and GU19 titles respectively as the 2024 English Junior Championships came to an end on a thrilling finals day at the Cumberland Lawn Tennis Club in London.

Bryant, the top seed in the boys’ event, retained his BU19 crown after overcoming the threat of second seed Abd-Allah Eissa (Warks). The 18-year-old completed an 11-4, 11-9, 11-5 victory to get his hands on his eighth junior national title. Meanwhile, GU19 top seed Haworth also got the better of the competition’s second seed as she defeated Abd-Allah’s sister, Mariam Eissa (Warks) by an 11-9, 11-4, 11-9 scoreline, improving on last year’s semi-final exit.

Second seed Ronnie Hickling (Surrey) built on last year’s semi-final finish at the BU17 event as he prevailed in this year’s final, beating 5/8 seed Viggo Hendricks (Glos) 11-8, 11-9, 11-5. Meanwhile, [1] Emily Coulcher-Porter (Bucks) collected the GU17 trophy courtesy of a victory over [2] Elizabeth Dicker (Hants).

In the GU15 decider, it was [1] Harriet Broadbridge (Hants) who took the honours after an impressive 11-2, 11-5, 11-1 dismantling of [3/4] Renata Colabella (Kent). It was another Hampshire representative who secured the BU15 trophy, with [1] George Griffiths getting the better of [2] Gabriel Chak (Surrey).

The Chak family still had plenty to celebrate as Esther Chak (Surrey) lived up to her billing as the top seed of the GU13 event, beating [2] Nadiya Ismail (Warks) 11-3, 11-3, 11-5.  The BU13 trophy went to [2] Alexander Koa-Wing (Middx), who upset the seedings to take out title favourite [1] Oscar Brown (Leics) in straight games.

A familiar name was in action in the BU11 final and despite showing some delicate touches reminiscent of his former World ‘1 father, second seed Logan Willstrop (Yorks) eventually went down in four games to [1] Ben Lamond (Dorset).  [1] Siona Mishra (Warks) was crowned the GU11 champion after she dispatched [3/4] Ada Brown (Norfolk) in four games.

Finally, the mixed U9 event was won by [1] Naishe Matamisa (Warks),  the current British National champion who beat [2] Gabriel Cannistraci (Middx) in straight games.
