Our badminton teams competed in the Herts and Middx League Badminton tournament last week where individual pairs representing Queenswood, NLCS, Northwood College, RMS and St Helen’s battled it out to find the best individual pair from the league.
The 10 pairs in each age group played a round robin event with the pairs finishing in the top four progressing through to the semi-finals. In the U14 event both Arshia and Ashna and Ameera and Aamena performed exceptionally well to finish 1st and 2nd in the group. Both pairs then overcame their semi-final opponents to set up an all St Helen’s final. In a tightly contested match Ameera and Aamena proved too strong for Ashna and Arshia, and managed to clinch victory.
In the U15 event, both pairs finished in the top four and ended up playing each other in the semi-final. Sneha and Reesa progressed through to the final where they comfortably beat their opponents to take the title. Congratulations to all the girls on a dominant performance by St Helen’s!
