Ellison returns to the top of the latest Doubles Rankings


Will Ellison regains top spot in the new Doubles Rankings published today, replacing Dan Grant who drops down a place after his much enjoyed three month reign as number one. This change follows Will’s win with Charlie Brooks in the North West. These rankings reflect results from the North West, Under 25s, and the North of England events.

Normally I would have published a singles and doubles rankings update after the Under 25s in February, but a problematic house move has made this difficult – my apologies. I have decided to publish this Doubles update now, and there will be a further update following the National Doubles and Scottish Doubles at the end of the season. With just the Scottish Singles left this season, rather than do a Singles update now, I will leave that until the end of season in May.

Lower down in the top ten Doubles, Dan Tristao overtakes Ed Kay at 3, Ollie Arnold overtakes Charlie Brooks at 5, while Ben Beltrami enters the top ten at no. 8. Ollie and Ben benefit from great wins in the U25s and North of England, while Dan T picked up useful points as runner-up in the NofE with Dave Butler. In the top 30 Sam Russell (14), Archie McCreath (21), Julian Hanton (27), and James Smith (29) all make good progress, while elsewhere, great strides up the list are made by Christian Blackaby (31), Louise Mathias (37), Joe Sumner (40), and Pete Kullavanijaya (51). Louise becomes the highest placed of the three ladies now featured in the open rankings.

We also have two new entrants, Douglas Law and Michael Suddaby, who enter the rankings at equal 59th place.
