School Games Smash Badminton Competition

9th March 2018

Last Friday, the Shinfield Year 3/4 badminton team attended the annual Wokingham School Games badminton competition at Woodford Park. The team contained three children who had never represented the school before so there were a few nerves flying around upon arrival. These nerves soon disappeared when they began competing at the 8 stations which tested their agility, coordination, serve, overhead clear and racket control. The energy put in by the Shinfield children was really high and after completing all the stations, they had nothing left to give! It was then announced, much to the delight of the Shinfield parent support on the viewing gallery balcony, that Shinfield had claimed second place and the children received their silver medals! Mr Lappin was extremely pleased with how the children competed and the effort levels they showed throughout.
