The U14 team had qualified for the North West Finals of the Center Parcs National Badminton Championships in Manchester.
The team started well beating Alderley Edge School for Girls, Cheshire 5-0 and Newman School, Cumbria 5-0.
We then played the favourites West Kirby from Merseyside. The match depended on the final game which we lost so lost the match 3-2. The girls played some very good badminton in this match but West KIrby were just that bit stronger than us. Our final game was against St Michael’s School, Lancashire, The wind had gone from the girls sails and they did not have a good match, losing 4-1.
The team therefore won the bronze medal.
We look forward to playing again next year as we only lose one player from this team.
The U16 team played in the Regional round of the Centre Parcs National Schools’ Competition. We beat All Hallows School 5-0 and Ullswater School 3-2. We then lost narrowly to Merchant taylor School 3-2 and then to Upton School, Chester 4-1. These results placed up in Bronze medal position.
Well done girls.
