St Christopher’s held the U16 girls badminton competition. 11 teams attended the event, all enthused to win. St Christopher A & B team, Clitheroe Royal Grammar (CRGS) and Bowland all made it through to the semi-finals after winning their group. Playing for 3rd or 4th place was St Christopher’s B team and CRGS. Playing in the final for 1st or 2nd place was St Christopher’s A team and Bowland. Both games proved very tense as all teams were of a very similar ability, showing great tactical play. CRGS placed 3rd in the playoff, St Christopher’s B team placed 4th. Bowland was the winning team scoring 3-2. St Christopher’s placed 2ndhowever, putting them under intense pressure during the 5 games and were very close to winning the competition.
Well done to Bowland and St Christopher’s A team who will both go forward to represent Hyndburn and Ribble Valley at the County Competition in Blackpool.
