On Sunday 29th April, Queen Elizabeth’s School’s Key Stage 3 Girls Badminton Team made the long journey to Milton Keynes for the National Schools Badminton Finals.
Previously, the QE girls had achieved back to back wins at the County Championships in Paignton and Southern England Championships in Bournemouth. This Championship was the final round pitting the best that the country has to offer against each other.
The girls began the day within a very tough group which saw Walthamstow Hall School, who eventually went on to finish as winners in the country. The girls entered the second round of games against Iveshead School and Sheffield High School.
The girls finished the day as the fourth best team in the country. An outstanding achievement!
