On Thursday 3rd of March, 16 keen badminton players travelled to Thomas Middlecott Academy to take part in a badminton competition. There they met players from Sibsey and Butterwick schools.
After warming up, everyone was numbered and played in single games against another player. The winner of the match advanced forward to the next round. Friendly matches were organised for those not moving on!
In the end Gabija ended up in the girls' final and finished in second place so taking the Silver medal! Emily, who had missed the final by 1 point!, took 3rd place (Bronze) in her play off.
Meanwhile, in the the boys' finals William played and secured first place and the Gold medal- brilliant play!
Francis played for the 3rd and 4th positions and secured 3rd place.
Congratulations to all the finalists! Well done to all the players. Everyone's game certainly improved over the event. Many thanks to the Thomas Middlecott students who gave up their time to help coach and umpire the games and to Mr Haslam for organising the event. Thank you to all the parents who helped with transport, Without you we wouldn't have been able to attend!
