U16 BDSSA Badminton Championships 2017
On Monday 20th March, the U16 boys and girls Blackburn with Darwen Schools Badminton Competition was held in QEGS sports hall. All of our players played well and had some convincing victories to reach the semi-finals.
In the girls singles competition Westholme had all the semi-finalists. Charlotte Milnes beat Harriet Pay in one semi-final and Alice Hartley beat Eloise Little Fair in the other to make it an all Westholme final. In the final Alice just managed to beat Charlotte 21-17 to become the girls U16 girls singles champion. Well done Alice!
In the boys competition, Tom Dixon was our only representative but he did Westholme proud by winning his group convincingly and then winning a tough semi-final match to reach the final. In the final he played a boy form QEGS and it was a very close and hard fought match but Tom eventually came through as the winner by 21-19. So Tom is now the U16 BDSSA boys singles champion.
A bit of Westholme history here as Tom is the first boy to win a BDSSA badminton title – Well done Tom!
