BISI Badminton Berkshire Finals

24th March 2017

Today, the Year 3/4 badminton team travelled to Bisham Abbey to compete in the Berkshire Finals as they had previously won the Level 2 Wokingham competition at the start of the Spring Term. The children were very apprehensive yet excited about competing on such a big stage! With Mr Childs driving the minibus, the team arrived bleary-eyed to Bisham Abbey and met up with the many other teams representing their area of Berkshire. The badminton activities began with vigour and Shinfield started strongly once again. Due to the nature of the rotation system, it was almost impossible for schools to tell how well they were doing so the award ceremony at midday was a much anticipated event! To their utter delight, Shinfield St Mary’s were awarded the silver medal! This was an amazing achievement for the children involved and once again puts Shinfield on the sporting map!
