National Badminton Finals

The KS 4 Boys competed at  the National Badminton finals held at Center Parcs last Sunday.  The team of Eddie Thorpe, Matt Curtis, Bailey Hurt and Robbie Collingburn played the first rounds in the morning progressing easily into the final place matches.  The next match was crucial to the colour of medal we could achieve and was very close, we lost one game 21/20 another 21/19 but won 21/19 to won the match 3 games to 2, so a silver medal minimum.  The next school had two England players in their team and this would be tough.  It was, to their credit the boys stayed focussed and took one game from the team, which was more than any other school had achieved throughout the days competition.   I was again proud of the boys and their achievement, in five years 4 silvers and 1 gold.  Well done to all of them
