NATIONAL SCHOOLS COUNTY BADMINTON COMPETITION 2017
Last week local school teams, who had qualified through from earlier rounds, represented their Unitary Authority in the County round of the National Schools Badminton Competition held at UWE. Approximately 450 Avon players took part from about 70 schools, just some of the 41,000 schoolchildren making up 6,400 teams nationally. The winners of this County round will go forward to represent Avon playing in the South West Regional Final on 1st March in Bournemouth from which the successful school teams will then play in a National Round. With 4 separate competitions taking place Key Stage 3 Girls, Key Stage 3 Boys, Key Stage 4 Girls, and Key Stage 4 Boys and each competition having a representative team from BANES, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire this equated to more than 80 young badminton players and the standard was high.
Under 10's matches between Uphill, Chew Valley & St. Ursula's. 2017
The last few months has seen a new venture for Uphill, Chew Valley & St. Ursula's junior clubs with under 10 friendly matches.
In the Uphill v Chew Valley encounter there was a giant format which saw 8 singles rubbers followed by 24 doubles rubbers, all 2 games to 11 points.
For both sides most children were playing their first ever competitive match with a great deal of excitement.
With 16 children between the ages of 7 and 10 it really was quite a spectacle.
