Congratulations to the U16 ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams for their performance in the Greater Manchester round of the National Schools’ Badminton competition which was held at the Amaechi Centre which is part of Whalley Range High School.

Both teams won their sections and then their quarter and semi-final matches against schools from all over Greater Manchester.

They then met in the final which the ‘A’ team won 5-0.

It is an amazing achievement to have two teams in the final, such is the strength and depth at this age group at school at the moment.

The girls have received a certificate and a gold or silver medal.

The ‘A’ team now go onto represent Greater Manchester in the North West semi-final. They will be trying to win that competition to reach the National Finals again. Good luck girls.

Mrs finch would like to thank Mr Garrod and Mr Weaver for their continued support. They give up their time on a Monday to help coach the team players and they both supported the teams at this tournament. Thank you.
