Congratulations Will

Congratulations to Will Butler


Congratulations to Will Butler who gained his international world junior ranking this week. He travelled to Holland despite being no.18 on the reserve list, got into the qualifying and as one of the lowest ranked players,  qualified and made it through the quarter finals. 


Will started training at the club in September 2013 at the age of 13  through the partnership WimX established with Felsted School. After a good year of progress, Will went full time on the WimX /Freedom program the following year.  His starting point was an U14 county ranking of 52 and a national ranking of 985 and a rating of 8.2.


Will has continually progressed throughout his time training at the club and performed consistently well with some rapid ranking gains which included a 38 match winning streak in the Summer of 2015 and he has now leapfrogged many of his peers who were considerably ahead of him. 


Will has had a top 50 GB ranking for the last two years and is currently the no.1 U18 player in Essex and continues to be a great role model for the younger members of the club.  The Club would like to to congratulate Will and the WimX coaching team, especially his lead coach Lorna.
