A familiar sight for 50-times GP winner Ryan Jenkins

The 2013/14 Grand Prix points are finally out and it’s been a profitable season for the Jenkins clan with father Ryan and son Jac stealing the show during this season’s campaign.

Ryan, potentially in his last full Grand Prix season, waltzed to the Men’s Singles title with a resounding 314 point gap over second placed Matt Ware to earn yet another overall Men’s Singles prize.

Jac Jenkins picked up three top 5 results from 2013-14

His achievement, taking with it £1,545 from the prize pot, was almost matched by young protégé Jac, who won Men’s Bands 3 and 4 as well as finishing runner-up in Band 5 and 5th place in the Under-21s to secure an astonishing £916.

It was also a double win for the Men’s Singles runner-up Ware. His £824 for second place was enhanced by winning the Open Doubles title (£288) despite having to undergo an operation half-way through the season.

In the Women’s Singles, Karina Le Fevre’s 131 point total was enough to secure back-to-back titles and the £515 prize to boot with her closest challengers Gillian Edwards (91 points) and Yolanda King (84) finishing comfortably adrift in second and third.

King’s third place was the first of three titles for the young Sussex player who also secured first place in the Women’s Under-21s and another third place in the Women’s Band 1.

Similarly it was a multiple win for Cumbrian prospect Emily Bolton who swept up the awards with four top-five finishes. Her best a runner-up spot in Women’s Band 2, followed by third in the Under-21s, fourth in the Women’s Singles and fifth in Women’s Band 3.

We apologise for the delay in getting the overall Grand Prix points published this year. It was our intention to do as we always have, and present the prize money at the end of the season. However, when a few errors were pointed out, we took the decision to delay the announcement and recalculate the points to ensure the correct results.

Cheques will now be written and posted out to winners over the coming days. Please allow a couple of weeks before chasing to see where your cheque is, if you haven’t received it.

My thanks go to Steve Smith, who has put in a great effort to recalculate and complete these final lists despite having many other table tennis and personal commitments. The work of our event volunteers is very much appreciated.

Lastly, we hope you had an enjoyable season and hope to see you all on the circuit again in 2014/15.

Competitions and Events Officer

Please note:

-> In cases of ‘ties’ a tie between second and third, for example, will result in the combined prize pot being split 50/50 while a tie for fifth results in the fifth place pot being split in half.
-> Overall prize amounts can be found on any of the online programmes from this season’s Grand Prix tournaments.
