Last Friday saw the Year 4/5 Badminton Tournament take place at Nottingham Jubilee Sports Centre. Nine teams entered the festival with each school bringing a team of four girls and four boys.
The event was supported by leaders from South Nott’s College who scored the majority of matches.
After all the teams had played each other in the 5 minute matches, the top four teams from each of the competitions took to the courts again. This was to determine the top three medal spots. The rest of the competitors took part in a serving contest to win the trophy.
Whitemoor boy’s team showed some excellent badminton skills and won almost all of their matches along with Welbecks girl’s team who had some very talented players in their squad.
Once the points were in they showed what a close contest it had been. Whitemoor had won the gold by 1 point followed by Welbeck and an excellent effort from Greenfields taking home the bronze medals. Well done to all involved, it was great to see so many teams taking part in a Badminton Tournament in this age group. For photographs of the event please CLICK HERE
