Hawick & District Primary School Tournament (2009)

Around 40 primary schoolchildren from the town's catchment area descended on Hawick High School on Sunday, 26 April, 2009 for the inaugural Hawick & District Primary Schools tournament.

Both the girls and boys' tournaments were hotly contested with all the children battling it out in a round-robin pool competition for four quarter-final places. An early start for the boys did not detract from the standard of play, with some entertaining ties throughout the morning before the girls began their equally-exciting pool stages after lunchtime.

Many parents and friends came along to support the tournament and by the finals were played the atmosphere in the hall had reached fever pitch. Silence descended for the first of the finals which saw Drumlanrig Primary School girls Iben McMillan and Alice Perry go heah-to-head for the honours. Having played steadily all afternoon, P6 pupil Iben kept her cool to beat her schoolmate 21-10, 21-3 in a well contested match.

The boys' singles final turned out to be a ral humdinger of a game when Denholm's Henry Leask found himself with a fight on his hands following a superb comeback by Drumlanrig's Ross Graham. Leask won the first end with a comfortable 21-12 scoreline, but on finding himself 11-4 down in the second game, young Graham collected himself and began to fight, taking the game by 21 points to 16.

The third and final end was a thriller. Graham held on to a two to three point advantage for most of the game, however, breaking away in the closing stages to lift the title 21-15.
