The Kingdown Under 14 Badminton Team have been crowned County Champions after the finals took place at Tidworth.

In the finals, sponsored by Center Parcs, they played Braddon Forest (4-1 Winners), Stonehenge (5-0 Winners) and Devizes (4-1 Winners).  The team now go onto the South West Finals in Exeter on the 3rd March.

The boys have trained hard for the competition and have also been helping the younger players to develop their skills.  This has given them a better understanding of techniques and tactics which is required to perform at this level.  A huge thanks must also go to John Murphy, their coach, and to Mr Renaud for taking them on the day.

Pictured above are the team of Josh Haine, Alex Geddes, George Smith, Jamie Seviour and Liam Tye.

We wish them all the best in the next round.

County Badminton Runners up

Performing at the same competition, the Under 16 girl’s team also did fantastically well, ending as runners up.  They just missed out to Kingsdown School who they played in their first game losing 3-2.

They went on to beat South Wilts Grammar School 3-2, but this was not to take them through to the next round.

Pictured above are the team of Emily Beagley, Ramish Altaf, Hayfa Bhatti, Daisie Hale and Alice Feltham.
