Willson takes Bath – nearly

Bath Grand Prix Veteran Singles

Martin Gunn proved too strong for the rest of the competition in this event winning the quarter, semi and final without dropping a set. Ben Willson was the losing finalist 11-7, 11-9, 11-3.

An on-form Simon Morgan took Gunn close in the quarter finals by reaching deuce in the second set and narrowly losing 11-9 in the third.

On the other side of the draw Willson beat the experienced Rory Scott in a close encounter 12-10, 11-8 before winning 11-5 in the last set. Ryan Stockham was unlucky to miss out on a place in the final but Willson held his nerve to win in the fifth set 11-5 in the semi-finals.
