Badminton Success for Culford Pupils
On Saturday 26 November, Culford brothers, Harry (L3) and Charlie Wakefield (F4) travelled to Lillieshall and Ely to compete in a Badminton competition and tournament.
Harry, alongside his mixed doubles partner, competed in the U13 Gold Star Tournament. They battled their way through four rounds to reach the final, where they faced the number one seeds. They won their first game, lost the second and won the third game to take the title.
Charlie travelled to Ely to compete in the U16 competition, fighting his way through the rounds to reach the boys singles final, where he faced a player from Hertfordshire. Charlie displayed excellent form, winning 21-11, earning him the gold medal.
In addition, in the boy’s doubles, Charlie and his partner made it to the final but narrowly missed out on gold medals, earning themselves second place and silver medals.
As well as this success, last week, Charlie and Harry, Ralph Bartlett (L3) and Will Bettley (L3) represented Culford in the West Suffolk Badminton Championships. The four boys played expertly and are now through to the county finals on 27 January 2017, in Ipswich.
Well done to all.Published: December 5 2016
