National Schools’ Badminton : County round

We had qualified for this competition with two teams as we had been winners and runners-up in the Traford round. 

The ‘B’ team gained some valuable experience and although hey did not qualify from their section they played some good badminton.

The ‘A’ team flew through their section winning all 3 matches 5-0. In the semi-finals they met Failsworth School, who have won this competition before. We lost 3-2 but we could so easily have won as we lost one game 15-14. Failsworth went on to win the competition. So our team were losing semi finalists and won the bronze medal.

 A number of our Year 11 GCSE PE students were also there umpiring the numbers us matches. They did great job and were very professional.
