Ed Kay retains his position at the top of the new Singles Rankings, with Dan Tristao and Will Ellison following close behind at #2 and #3. The same three players share the top places in the Doubles, this time Tristao taking top spot, with Ellison and Kay sharing 2nd place. These rankings reflect the results from the London, Yorkshire, and West of England championships.
In the Singles, Ben Beltrami moves up to #4 after a strong results in the recent events. Ben Jourdan moves into the top 20 while Lewis Keates, Rob Whitehorn and Cameron Low all make good progress in the top 30. Further down, Michael Suddaby improves his position while Gwydion Wiseman is a new entry at #39.
In the Doubles, Ollie Arnold is now in 4th place following finals partnering Theo Parker in both the London and West of England events. Other risers include some young players already mentioned in the Singles credits above — Ben Jourdan, Lewis Keates and Cameron Low. There are three new entries — Vishal Singh and Raheem Yusuf from the Derby Moor Club, and Julius Davies, who plays at the Bristol Club.
These rankings will provide guidance for seeding in the forthcoming Universities and National Singles championships, after which I hope to publish a further rankings update at end of year. Good luck to all taking part in those important events!
