Hi, I’m Year 9 student Rachel Jones and I’m going to share with you some of the details of our recent National Schools Badminton Tournament.
On Wednesday 28th November, 8 our Year 9 students travelled to Willenhall to compete in the first round of the Center Parcs National Schools Badminton Tournament for Key Stage 3.
Our girls team included Chloe Arrowsmith, Mpumie Ndlovu, Chanel John and Rachel Jones and our boys team included Faheem Jubayer, Nasser Rehan, Emmanuel Atuahene and Zirab Nawaz.
The tournament was made up of singles and doubles matches with the top three teams progressing to the 2nd round and the Walsall final. The girls team won all of their matches and now progress to the next round as the top team from round 1. The boys team played excellently in a strong field of 8 teams but unfortunately they did not win enough matches to progress to the 2nd round.
A special thank you goes to Lucy Farmer from year 11 for her help, support and patience with umpiring the entire girls tournament!
Congratulations to both our teams for their excellent play and conduct.
