Our U14’s badminton team have secured a place in the County Badminton Final’s, due to take place in January.

Our team attended a tournament at St Peter’s Academy, where they played various players. As a result from their hard work and commitment shown during their games, the U14’s won recognition of efforts alongside their place in  the county finals. This is a massive achievement and something that the  girls should be very proud.
