On Thursday 17th November 2016 two teams of five children competed in a badminton tournament at Oasis Academy, Wintringham.
Team A - Layla, Mackenzie, William, Max, Harrison.
Team B, Matthew S, Henrietta, Jacob, Matthew B, Thomas.
Both teams played extremely well with the B team getting enough points to allow them to qualify for the county finals held in Scunthorpe on Tuesday 28th March.
They were numbered 1-5 and they all played in each game to gain points as a team. Each player played for 2 minutes each and their scores were totalled for their team.
Their nerves kicked in during the first game but as each game was played they grew in confidence and put thought into their shots. By the last two games determination and effort was evident to help them finish in 11th place out of 16 finalists. An exciting tournament! It was nice to see good sportsmanship as they encouraged their teammates. A polite and well behaved bunch! Well played!
