International Championships 2020 – Bath University

After months of preparation, hard work, highs and lows we finally made the journey to Bath for the Matt Fiddes International Championships.  This was the biggest and most exciting championships to date with over 650 competitors from as far afield as Australia!

We may have been small in number but the spirit with which we competed was outstanding.  There were some excellent performances across the board and I think it is true to say that each and every team member did their very best.

As usual, out intrepid team of parents, friends and Instructors were incredible and a huge part of the MF Kent Team success.  Thank you one and all.

Here is the team:

  • Brear Homewood (Canterbury) – 1 x bronze
  • Charlie Hinder (Canterbury) – 1 x silver
  • Millie-Rose Hinder (Canterbury) – 1 x bronze
  • Jack Calvert (Canterbury) – 2 x bronze
  • Evie-Sue Lewis (Canterbury) – 2 x bronze
  • John Boon (Canterbury)
  • Josh Boon (Canterbury)
  • Emily Calder (Canterbury) – 3 x gold, 1 x bronze
  • Kalle Homewood (Canterbury) – 1 x silver
  • Henry Ross-Phillips (Canterbury) – 1 x bronze
  • Hugo Ross-Phillips (Canterbury)
  • Allegra Beaton (Maidstone) – 1 x gold
  • Kendra Beaton (Maidstone)

Our championships are open to ALL students, all ages and all locations so it would be fantastic to see more of our wonderful students from all over Kent.  Look out for the dates for 2020 and all the training days we have available just for the team.
