The team for Nottinghamshire was Elijah Killen-Smith, Kieran Yu, James Beale, Jacob Cameron and Josh Yard. 4 singles and 2 doubles to be played against each County in a Fast 4 format.
1st match was played against a strong Leicestershire team. Winning 3 of the 4 singles put the boys in a good lead and were able to win the 2nd pair doubles to win overall 4-2. Off to a good start!
2nd match was played against Lincolnshire. Again, the boys had some great performances in the singles and won 3 of them putting them in a strong lead. This time they were able to win both doubles to finish comfortable 5-1 winners,
1st match was played against Bedfordshire. This time the boys were able to win 2 of the 4 singles making the doubles all important. Changing the pairings round slightly had a good impact and they were able to win both to finish 4-2 winners.
2nd match was to be played against Cambridgeshire who were the group favourites at the start of the weekend and still within a chance of topping the group. All the boys went into the final match knowing what was at stake but all of them dealt with the pressure of the situation fantastically well to again win 3 of the 4 singles. Sticking with the doubles pairings from the match before the boys went on to win both beating a very strong team and making the National Finals without losing a match!
The team showed a great fighting spirit and togetherness over the weekend and were all able to deal with the pressures that arose extremely well.
