Amelie and Petrissa Solja win European Top 10
For the first time the European junior ranking list tournament included cadets as well as juniors. In Sheffield JOOLA junior stars Amelie and Petrissa Solja and English player Gavin Evans started as favourites in their respective competitions. The sisters from Wrth in Rhineland-Palatinate competently dominated the girl’s competitions. By so doing, Petrissa Solja made European history as first cadet winner of the European Top 10.
Gavin Evan’s 3rd place in the cadet’s competition was a little disappointing. Gavin hadn’t lost a match at previous international tournaments, but before his home crowd in Sheffield he suffered tight defeats against the ultimate number one and two.
But two gold and one bronze is an excellent result for our young talents at the most important junior tournament after the European Youth Championships. As at the Europe Top 12 in Frankfurt, the youth competition in Sheffield was played on JOOLA equipment.
