IAPS Badminton Tournament Semi-Finalists
Nathan, Henry, Chris and Zac competed against other U11 and U13 pairs at the IAPS Badminton Tournament, hosted by Eastbourne College, where Pair A enjoyed particular success reaching the semi-finals.
Nathan and Henry (Pair A) topped their group winning five out of six matches, narrowly losing the one match by a mere two points. With points to play for as the main objective, they achieved a fantastic 88 out of a possible 90 – a phenomenal achievement! Nathan and Henry reached the semi-finals which unfortunately they lost 21–9; however, as both boys are in Year 7 and the competition entered was for Year 8, we look forward to seeing what they achieve next year.
Chris and Zac (Pair B) had a lot of close games but unfortunately couldn’t convert any of them. Overall, the standard was good and they were not at all outclassed.
The Badminton Club is developing apace and congratulations to Nathan, Henry, Chris and Zac and Ms Smith for their dedication and determination. The boys train with Ms Smith for 30 minutes a week and none compete competitively (as yet) outside of school.
