The U12 1st Team and a very young 2nd Team played in the North Midway Badminton League at Babbington and they all played very well and developed their games during the course of the day. There were also a number of competitive debuts made for WSBA.
The First Team beat Leicestershire 2 and Yorkshire 2 10-0 and then clinched their group by beating Nottinghamshire 8-2. This meant they qualified for the A Group and matches against Yorkshire 1 which we won 10-0 and a very strong and experienced Leicestershire 1 team which we lost 8-2. Leicesteshire are the team to beat and have a very good team spirit, we played hard but their extra experience and quality took them over the line in many of the games which were often close.
So the First Team lie second at the end of Day 1, lots of work to overtake Leicestershire. Well played to Abbie, Anoushka, Chloe, Lauren, Aarush, Manas, Max, Tarun.
The Second Team lost to Leciestershie 1, 10-0, which is what every other team apart from Warickshire 1 did during the day. They also lost to Yorkshire 1, 8-2, but beat Leicestershire 3, 6-4, which was a great result. They went into the B Group for the afternoon where they lost 10-0 to Leicestershire 2, and 6-4 to Yorkshire 2.
For reference, Yorkshire 2 had a 5 year old playing, and he could move and it like you would not believe.
The Second Team lie 7th at the end of Day 1, Well played to Aishani, Hannaa, Olivia, Vidhya, Ben, Junchen Michael, Vishwesh,
