Wokingham Year 5/6 Badminton Tournament

29th January 2016
On Friday 29th January, the Year 5/6 Badminton Team competed in the first ever Year 5/6 badminton tournament at Woodford Park.

All the children were excited to compete in a match format as they had only ever competed in the BISI Badminton stations when they were in Year 3/4.

Three schools attended the new tournament and for many of them it was the first time they had ever hit the shuttlecock over a badminton net! The children were paired up in mixed doubles pairs for the duration of the afternoon.

Despite huge improvements in their performances, Shinfield came 3rd out of the three schools. Hopefully the tournament will be a regular fixture in the sporting calendar!
