The weekend of 11th & 12th of February saw some of there Team Leics girls travelling the length and breadth of the UK in their quest for badminton competition!
On Saturday, Evie Pike & Grace Sherwin made the long trek to Ipswich for the U15 Suffolk Silver event. A successful day’s play saw both take home bronze medals in the level doubles and also the mixed doubles with their respective partners Charlie and Tobias. Evie also enjoyed success in the singles with a 3rd bronze medal.
Meanwhile in more northerly counties Jess Rodgers was flying the flag for Team Leics at the U17 Yorkshire bronze. Having only entered the singles events this time, Jess beat the top seed to progress through to a very close final against Zoe Raiswell where she was just pipped to the silver medal 22-20.
On Sunday it was Tilly Dale’s turn to shine in the U15 Yorkshire bronze. Scooping a bronze medal in the singles, Tilly went one better with her local partner Emily, winning a silver medal as well in the level doubles!
Congratulations to all the players!
