Junior British League, Derby, February 2016

Mia headed over to Derby on the weekend of 6/7 February to play Junior British League for Warrington TTC. 

This was the final weekend of two. The previous weekend in October, Warrington had won all their matches and were leading Division 1.  Their aim was to consolidate that and gain promotion to the Premier Division for 2016/17 by finishing in the top two.  Mia's teammates were Rachael, Amy and Rebecca. 3 players are on a team for each match and each player plays two singles each.

Warrington got off to a great start on the Saturday morning winning v London Academy Bournemouth 5/1 and  Ulster 6/0.  Their final match of the day was v Batts and this saw another win for Warrington - 6/0.

Warrington were still on top heading into Sunday, knowing that to be guaranteed promotion they needed to at least draw their first match on Sunday when they were up against Burton Uxbridge and draw they did! 3/3.  

In the last match they beat Draycott EM Girls 5/1 emerging as Winners of Division 1.  Mia played a total of 16 matches over the two weekends winning 15. Well done Rachael, Amy, Rebecca and of course Mia!
