It was an early start for the badminton team as they travelled down to Eastbourne College for the National IAPS Badminton Championships. The boys started strongly and performed well in the group stages with both U11A and U13A team finishing 2nd in their group and qualifying for the cup knock out stages. Our U13B and C team met in the plate semi-final and in a thrilling game the C team won 21-19 to progress to the final. In a hard fought final Harry and Alex were not able to take advantage of an early lead and lost the 1st set 21-19 and the 2nd set 21-15. Both of the A sides lost in the quarter finals in extremely close matches with the U13A losing 21-19 with opportunities to win. The boys were outstanding in both behaviour and standard of badminton.
