Dutch Junior Open – Results



Ellie McVeigh had a great result in the Dutch Open U13 last weekend finishing a highly credible 4th. Well Done Ellie!!

She won 4 matches out of 7 and had a great match against the number 1 seed Ukrainian, Alina Bushma. There is obviously a lot of potential in this talented young player from Belfast.


Scott Gillanders had a very tough draw coming up against the Indian number 1, Vikas Mehra, who was seeded 33-64, clearly a wrong seeding. Scott lost that match 3-0. However he had 3 victories in the rest of the tournament so a good experience for him in his development.


His sister Griffin in the Under 17 event, had 3 victories out of 5 matches so again a good experience in very tough competition.


Well Done to all 3 of them.


Ireland has three players competing in the Dutch Junior Open in Amsterdam this week. The event is at the FRANS OTTEN STADION where the Senior European Championships took place in early May.


The 3 players are:

Ellie McVeigh (Ulster) – Under 13

Scott Gillanders (Leinster) – Under 15

Griffin Gillanders (Leinster) – Under 17
