National Schools Badminton Finals

Stacks Image 687030

WITH OVER 2,000 schools starting out in this competition, it was a great honour for Wilson's to be among the nine teams that met for the finals. On Sunday 7 May the team travelled to the National Badminton centre in Milton Keynes to compete. The team was seeded to come seventh in the competition, but naturally wanted to do better.

In the first group, Wilson's beat Garforth comfortably and then went on to play one of the favourites from Reading and the eventual winners. Sadly they lost the match, but not without a great deal of effort being expended and a lot of close games.

This put the team in the group playing for 4th, 5th and 6th places. They really raised their game and won their first match against Balcarras 4-1 and went on to play Richard Hale losing narrowly 2-3, with one game being very close with a final score of 20 – 21. At the beginning of the season it did not look likely that Wilson's would qualify, but it shows what can be done with some talent and a lot of hard work and effort.

Many thanks to all the parents who travelled up and spent a long day supporting the school, and to Mrs Beckman for her coaching and encouragement. Wilson's finished in 5th place overall in the country, which is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the practice and hard work which the boys have put in.

This is the fifth consecutive year that the school has reached the National final and now the team is ready to start again with their target of the 2018 Finals. The bar is set very high! The Wilson's team comprised: Tom Malcolm, Luke Griffiths, James Benjamin, David Middleton and Jazeban Asokkumar.
