Mollie Patterson was a double gold medallist at the PG Mutual Cadet & Junior National Championships in Wolverhampton.

The Brancaster Staithe athlete won the Junior Girls’ Doubles and Mixed Doubles, but had to settle for bronze in the singles after losing in the semi-finals.

Patterson’s first title came in the Mixed alongside James Smith as they defeated surprise package Jamie Liu and Ruby Chan, who are younger Cadet players, 3-2 (11-8, 11-13, 11-4, 8-11, 11-8). She then partnered Kate Cheer in the doubles, beating Jasmin Wong and Chan 3-1 (13-11, 3-11, 12-10, 11-9). In the singles, Patterson lost to Cadet champion Wong 4-2 (11-9, 13-15, 11-8, 9-11, 13-11, 12-10).

Patterson, 15, said: “I’m pleased with the two doubles titles. I’ve never played with James or Kate before but I’m a good doubles player and in both pairs we talked and worked together really well and kept each other’s spirits up.”
