In mid February Maia Pannell competed in the French Junior Open. She played exceptionally well and reached the final. Unfortunately she lost an incredibly tight match 11/9 in the fifth. This result has moved her up to no 5 in Europe.
Then in March she played in the English National Championships, again playing exceedingly well and again reaching the final, dropping just one game on the way. In a very tight final against the number one seed, she eventually lost 11/8 in the fifth.
We are now hoping she could be selected for the England squad.
