Wokingham School Games SMASH Badminton

1st March 2019

Last Friday saw the return of the annual Wokingham Level 2 SMASH Badminton competition. The competition involved 9 stations, each testing a different badminton skill or physical skill used in a badminton match. Schools had 2 minutes to complete the skills at each station as many times as possible, resulting in a points total for the school as a whole. Shinfield St. Mary’s brought a team of 4 boys and 4 girls which included one girl who had been drafted in that very lunchtime as sickness had hit one of the original team members. It was announced at the end of the competition that Shinfield St. Mary’s had come in second place, missing out on first place by 7 points – the equivalent to only 4 dropped catches!
