Shorthand Champions League group tables - final standings

Oct
24

Final standings for the Shorthand Champions League groups are shown below. Qualifiers for the knockout stages are shown with a Q next to their names.

Katie Palmer is the bookies' hot favourite for the crown following her 100% error-free performances so far, but Alex Norman, Jackie Gordon and Lauren Meechan are clear contenders - with just 2, 3 and 4 errors respectively. As group winners they will be seeded to avoid each other in the Round of 16.
