Deepti (Primary 5), also competing for the first time in the Primary championships, lost a tough match in quarter-finals after topping her pool. Vibha and Deepti then joined forces to the fly the St George’s flag again in the doubles, coming out victorious, beating another Edinburgh team from Bruntsfield in the final.
