U12 County Championships 2017

A very well done to all the players who participated in the county championships this weekend. After a long season for a lot of the younger players, there were fantastic games, great achievements, huge improvements, brilliant debuts and a real sporting and supportive atmosphere.

The day started with the singles. In the boys, after some competitive group games, Mitchell Allen, William Sewell, Baptiste Broquet and Jack Weston finished top 2 in their respective groups and went on to play in the main draw semi-finals, William and Mitchell being the winners and going onto the final, both undefeated on the day. Knowing that it would be a cracking final, the boys took to the court and proved worthy of being finalists, both showing determination and grit in order to get the edge over their opponent. Well done to both boys, they both did themselves proud but William came out the eventual winner in 2 games 21-19 and 21-17.

With the girls it was a similar story, competitive games and some great badminton played with Carly Stevenson, Fallon Reid, Katie Hoult and Matilda Sherwin all playing fantastically to reach the semi-finals. Fallon and Carly won these games, once again both undefeated going into the final. The girls took to the court, both showing why they were finalists but Carly continued with her fantastic form this year, winning in 2 games 21-6 and 21-11.

The plate trophy competitions saw some excellent badminton with the finals being battled out between Gabriel Davey and Alex Vermaak and Sylvie Walker and Sansha Riches. Well done to Gabriel and Sylvie winning these games.

Next up were the level doubles. These games were played in a round robin with all players getting to play each other, some great badminton was played and partnerships of the future formed. Katie Hoult and Lola Dale, continuing with their successful season, won 3 of their 4 games and were the worthy runners-up. Carly and Fallon dominated the doubles, winning all 4 games and were therefore crowned champions. A similar story was seen in the boys, Jack Weston and Gabriel Davey winning 3 of the 4 games proving to be a solid partnership and worthy runners-up. William and Mitchell dominated their games once again without dropping one and being crowned boys doubles champions.

Well done to all the players and especially to Carly and Will who were crowned singles and level doubles champions 2017, both without dropping a game throughout the whole day.
