All the finals took place over the same weekend and it was fantastic to convert all three finals into wins!
Evan had a number of strong performances in Tunisia in his final trip of the year. He reached the QF and the SF of the two singles events and won another doubles title to finish off what has been a great year for him. He will finish the year ranked in the top 450 players in the world.

Liverpool hosted some international events in November with Morgan Cross reaching the semi-final of the first week and Megan Davies qualifying and reaching the quarter finals of the second week.
