Ingham and Phillips join qualifiers

The pre-qualifying event at the K2 Leisure Centre in Sussex saw Surrey’s Georgina Ingham and Hampshire’s Alex Phillips complete the list of those winning their places in the Allam British Open qualifying competition.

Ingham, 17,┬ásurvived a tight five-setter to pip Annabelle Collins-Ballands in the deciding match, and┬ámade it a family double as she joined her elder sister Harriet who won last weekend’s event at the Connaught Club.

Phillips, coach at the Winchester Club and a regular in their PSL team, beat Clive Ewins 3/0 in the final to book himself a place in the qualifying draw at St George’s Hill next weekend.

The K2 winners join Ben Ford, Joey Barrington, Harriet Ingham and Richie Fallows as winners of the pre-qualifying events.
