Dan Tristao and Will Ellison confirmed their positions at the top of the game in the latest rankings, prepared for the RFA by Dave Hebden. Dan remained at the top of the singles rankings, while Will kept his top spot in the doubles rankings.
These rankings take into account results at the South West, South East and London Open Championships, and see Will close on Dan at the top of the singles rankings after winning both the London and South West Open titles. Meanwhile, South East champion Ed Kay moves up to seventh spot, and David Butler and Richie Murby enter the Top 10 for the first time. The biggest riser was Ben Beltrami, jumping 31 places to 15th, while his fellow Old Pauline Theo Parker climbed 10 places to make the Top 20 for the first time.
In the doubles rankings, Will maintained his clear top spot, but his South West-winning partner Dan Grant climbed up to second ahead of Dan Tristao and Charlie Brooks. Just outside the Top 10, Ben Beltrami, Chris Burrows and James Tilston all made big jumps, but perhaps the biggest news in the rankings came a little down – in 69th place, in fact, where Alex Steel (a plate finalist in the South West Open) became the first woman to earn a place in the rankings.
