3rd place for the U14 team at the District Badminton Tournament
On Tuesday 23rd November, Mrs Newberry and Mrs Blakey took six year 9 and year 10 girls to Ridgeway Academy to take part in the District Badminton tournament.
The Under 14 team (Anna S, Jolie K, Ruby S and Ella S) finished 3rd, with Anna winning all her matches very convincingly. The Under 16 team (Shekina S and Shona H) won most of the friendly games they played against Queenswood and Chancellors. The girls were an absolute credit to the school throughout the tournament – well done everyone!
A huge thank you to Mrs Newberry and Mrs Blakey for running the Badminton club on a Friday lunchtime and for giving up their time to organise and take the girls to this competition.
Badminton is fast becoming popular at Bishop’s with Year 7 club on a Wednesday lunchtime with Mr Stevens and Ms Hurley and Year 8-11 club on a Friday lunchtime with Mrs Newberry and Mrs Blakey. Have you attended yet? If not, come along and have a go!
