Hampshire Open Report
Fleming Park Leisure Centre, last hosted this event in November 2008 & it was a welcome return to the Eastleigh venue, although the location, coupled with a lower local turn out, perhaps accounted for the lower entry number, with 31 competitors finally competing across four categories of entry. The 2008 event attracted 40 competitors, the venue limit, with a 25 player waiting list, perhaps off the back of the BBC TV coverage a few months earlier.
The venue provided two courts for each sport, with table tennis tables on two squash courts, & the only limitation on capacity being the lack of additional indoor tennis courts, although a summer event could make use of the outdoor tennis courts....
