Tournament Result – Wednesday 22nd February – Y5/6 Badminton
On a busy afternoon for sports at Whitemoor, a selection of our Y5/6 children traveled to Harvey Hadden to take part in the annual Badminton tournament.
Badminton is a very tough sport to master and, added to this, for a number of our team this was their first ever competitive sports event. Thankfully, these children have been practising regularly as part of after-school sessions with Miss Sharp, so played with high levels of confidence and skill.
After the grueling round robin matches had finished, all the wins and draws were added together to work out which position schools had finished in. Unfortunately, Whitemoor narrowly missed out on a medal, failing to claim third place as a result of a lower points score.
However, all the adults who took the children to this competition were extremely proud of their performances. Better luck next time Whitemoor!
The Y5/6 Badminton team were: Amirah A, Natasha C, Urooj F, Iman H, Owen S, Harvinder D, Jai W and Alfie G.
