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.

AVON COUNTY JUNIOR BADMINTON TOURNAMENT 2016

u16medallists2016

U16 Medallist’s

By Simon Parkinson

Organisers of the 2016 Avon County Junior Badminton Tournament expressed delight at the high standard of competition on show. More than 100 girls and boys in age categories from under-12s to under-18s, representing 15 schools and clubs, descended on Keynsham’s Wellsway School Sports Centre to produce 228 matches over two full-on days of enthralling singles and doubles action. Organised by Avon Badminton Association, the tournament was run by Bob Hammersley with the help of tournament secretary Anshalu Bansal and a host of volunteers including Judy White, Bronny Bennett, Evelyn Heighton and Jackie Millward. It was certainly an eventful and successful tournament for one competitor, Amy Mellersh, who not only helped out on the organisational side of the weekend but went on to win the under-14 girls singles and doubles titles in Chew Valley colours. Trophies were presented by Avon County captain Will Mellersh and Avon Junior County chairman Ian Coles on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
Avon Badminton development officer Penny Shears said: “It was wonderful to see so many boys and girls in four different age groups packing the sports hall over the two days and watched by so many spectators and helpers. “While the fun and enjoyment aspects were clearly there, the competitive factor was always apparent and some of the quality of badminton on show was of a very high standard, possibly the highest we have seen at this tournament.” Anyone, regardless of age or experience, wishing to find out more about badminton in and around the North Somerset, Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire areas can contact Penny Shears at

National Junior Badminton League 2016

abajuniors3 abajuniors5 Avon have entered the National Junior League U12 and U14 competition, this competition has been piloted throughout the country this year with 16 leagues taking part.
6 clubs took part in the U12 competition -  Chew Valley, St Ursula’s, Uphill, Avon County squad and Yate Racketeers. In the U14 group we had teams from Chew Valley, St Ursula’s, Clevedon and Uphill.
Thornbury Leisure Centre was the venue for the tournament to see who would go through to represent us at the finals. Each team could have had a maximum of 8 players with a minimum of 2 girls and 2 boys with any 4 taking part in each match.
The format was the same as the AJ Bell National Badminton League (NBL) with each match comprising of 5 rubbers Girls Singles, Boys Singles, Boys Doubles, Girls Doubles and Mixed Doubles. The children and scorer’s (we used team members not playing to score) coped extremely well with the new style of scoring which was best of three games to 9 points, we did not actually use the Powerplay. Flashing lights/music and pink shuttles was beyond my capabilities on this occasion, maybe next year!
After some very close and really enjoyable games the outcome was  Chew Valley A winning the U12 with St Ursula’s the U14 winners.
Chew Valley and St Ursula’s go through to represent Avon along with Uphill who won the U16 Avon league this season.
The finals are being held at the National Badminton Centre at Milton Keynes  on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June.
The players at the finals will be encouraged to replicate a professional badminton player by having post match interviews and photo shoots. Olympic silver medallist Gail Emms will also be on-hand during the event to share words of wisdom and answer any of the questions they may have.
All supporters welcome at Milton Keynes and good luck to all the players and coaches. U16Uphill2016winners.jpgGold and silverU14.Chew & St Ursula's.jpgMedal Winners JNBLU12&U14 2016.jpg
