Sana Tufail, 15, (Woking Ladies’) lives in Abu Dhabi and has won the 2012 United Arab Emirates women’s order of merit. Last December she became the youngest player to compete in the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, alongside the world’s best women professionals, and was subsequently voted Sportsperson of the Year by readers of a daily sports newspaper in Abu Dhabi.
Bradley Moore, 14, (Kedleston Park) won last year’s English under 14 boys’ championship by 10 shots. He is an under 16 international and an England schools’ cap. He finished fourth in the McEvoy Trophy earlier this year.
Ashton Turner, 16, (Kenwick Park) is the Lincolnshire boys’ champion. He made his debut for England at boys’ level in the recent European boys’ team championship in Sweden and he finished fourth in last week’s England under 16 championship for the McGregor Trophy in Cornwall.
Both players were members of the team that won the Nations Cup in Cornwall and are members of the England boys’ squad.
The European Young Masters includes separate boys’ and girls’ competitions and a mixed Nations Cup, with three of the four cards to count each day.
