Aspinall scored his tournament title with four wins before topping Jaden Rey Rosales (4-1, 4-1) in the final. Aspinall won back-to-back matches 4-0, 4-0 to open the weekend before winning the semi 4-3 (4), 4-0 over Dominic Bochinski.

In the girls under 12 division, Sophie Stanton took home the trophy and Madeline Fraser was the girls under 16 champion.
