As everyone is probably aware, the new grades were published towards the end of July. If you haven’t had a chance to check out your new grade, go to the new ECF grading site.
Two Juniors stand out – Alan Merry and Anita Somton.
Still only 16, Alan (227) is the top-graded junior in England (along with Marcus Harvey, who is a year older).
9-year old Anita recorded the largest increase of all players, male/female, adult/junior. Her grade increased from 59 in January to 109 in July!
