Challenging other county winners from around London, our U14 and U16 Badminton teams competed in the regional round of the National Schools Badminton Championships.
Competition was tough and despite valiant efforts, the U14 team narrowly lost 3-2 to Coopers Company and Coborn School and 4-1 to Nonsuch High School for Girls to finish 3rd in London. A great achievement by Ana, Arshia, Aashi, Aamena, and Ameera.
In the U16 competition, St Helen’s proved too strong for the opposition with convincing 5-0 wins over The Frances Bardsley Academy for Girls and Nonsuch High School for Girls. They will hopefully have the opportunity to represent London at the National Finals at some point in the not too distant future, competing against the other eight regional winners from around the country in a bid to be crowned National Champions. An amazing result. Congratulations to Asha, Sneha, Anisha, Shreya, and Kareena for their deft gamesmanship and determination.
