Draws for this weekend’s Allam British Open pre-qualifying tournaments in Hull have been released – and Derbyshire’s Joel Hinds and local hope Fiona Moverley are the leading contenders to claim the respective winning prize of a place in men’s and women’s Open qualifying.
Pre-qualifying will be held at the Hull University Sports Centre, which boasts five brand new glass-back courts and will also host the qualifying tournament and the first round of the women’s championship.
World no.72 Hinds’ main rival for the men’s qualifying spot is set to be Northamptonshire’s Mark Fuller, while Moverley is likely to contest the women’s pre-qualifying final with Cheshire’s top junior, Jessica Davis.
