On Saturday 18th of January, 10 year old Amelia competed in the U/13 Masters tournament in a very cold hall in Nicosia. She played with courage and determination winning all her preliminary games. After 8 hours of competition Amelia reached the final.
Amelia’s opponent in the final’s game was a much older player. It must be said that even though Amelia is only 10 y.o. she has already developed some amazing power, so that the older opponent found it very difficult to deal with Amelia’s shots. Having fought extremely hard in a very tight game Amelia unfortunately lost. However, she has shown once more great spirit and bravery.
Congratulation to this young lady for bringing home to EMBA B.C. the silver medal. Amelia received high praises from the umpires and coaches from other clubs regarding her ability.
