On Friday 23rd January The Blue Coat School’s badminton teams from Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 travelled to Widnes with Head of P.E. Mr Dowling to take part in the Merseyside County round of the English National Schools Badminton Championship. To get to this advanced stage of the competition both teams achieved 1st place in the Liverpool City Region round.
At the event both teams made it all the way to the semi-finals of the main competition, however they were sadly defeated by Merchant Taylor’s School for girls at Key Stage 4 and Upton Hall Girls School at Key Stage 3. The standard of badminton was extremely high in both age categories, and all girls competed fiercely giving a great account of themselves.
Despite their loss, victories over Greenbank High School, Kirkby High School, Fazakerley High School, St John Bosco and All Saints High School, were achieved.
Congratulations to both teams for taking part in such a competitive competition, we wish you the best of luck in your up and coming fixtures.
