All England Badminton Championships
14 pupils along with Mrs O’Neill and Mr Stevenson attended the All England Badminton Championships at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham on March 4th. They were given the tickets as part of the Premier League 4 Sport project, in which the pupils attend regular coaching sessions at STB with a Badminton coach and take part in competitions around the Midlands region.
There were 5 courts with singles, doubles and mixed doubles matches. We were fortunate to watch the mixed Doubles pairing of Gabby and Chris Adcock win their first round match. They won Gold for England in the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day and were excellent ambassadors for the school with their behaviour and attitude. Well done to:
Ben Ireland, Ben Pratt, Arron Perry, Leah Carvell, Cain Carvell, Nicole Turner, Harvey Turner, Ryan Bridgewood, Ella Myatt, Charlotte Fone, Megan Jones, Ellie Eccleston, Niamh Hartless and Will Bailey.
