The 2019 Super Series will begin in the same location as the 2018 edition began, the East Midlands Open.  After that it repeats its journey around the UK, with stops at the British Championships, Staffordshire Open before finishing at the North West Open.  Dates for these events can be found on our Events page.  This page will provide the current standings in the Men's Open, Men's Challenger, Ladies Open, Futures and Masters events along with reports for each of the four tournament reports.  The standings will be updated after each event.  

 

East Midlands Open

Defending Men's Super Series champion Dan Busby got off to the perfect title defence with victory once again at the East Midlands Open.  Meanwhile Women's A champion, Lauren Whiteman takes the early lead in the Women's event.  Seventh place in the Men's A gives Alistair Prades the early lead in the Challenger Super Series, however juniors Will Gregson, Will Taylor and David Bennett are close on his tail!  Finally, Freddie Whitfield takes early command of the Futures Series. 

The second round of the 2019 Super Series is at the British Championships (13th & 14th April) with launch information available here.

British Championships

Round two of the 2019 Super Series was the British Championships, and defending Men's Super Series champion, Dan Busby continued his perfect start, a maiden National Title in the Men's A keeping him firmly up top in this event.  Mr Consistency, Alex Du Noyer and rising star Ross Wilson maintain second and third place respectively after strong Britsih Championships showings.  With Hannah Boden claiming another National Title she ties for the lead with Lauren Whiteman in the Women's event. Defending champion, Matilda Parslow, opened her account and sits equal third with regular sparring partner, Jo Shelley. It was a first opportunity for the Masters players to score points, and so our O45s and O55s champions, Jeremy Krzystyniak and Martyn Langston, both currently lead the standings.  After a fantastic debut Men's A performance, Matthew Davidson leads the Challenger Super Series alongside British Championships Men's B winner, Stuart Rank.  David Bennett and Alistair Prades sit in equal third.  Finally, Alexandra Ogram's exceptional British Championships (winnign the Girls U21s and placing in the U16s) means she took home a massive 2850 points from Parklangley and stormed into the lead of the Futures series ahead of Freddie Whitfield and Cameron Leighton. 

The third round of the 2019 Super Series is the Staffordshire Open (Saturday 22nd June), entry is online here
