Badminton County Champions

28 September 2015



Congratulations to Year 11 Emily Jane Easton who became senior county doubles champion, with her adult partner Gemma Whiting, at the Senior County Championships held over the last weekend in September. Neither Emily Jane or Gemma had been selected into senior county teams last season so it was a great result. All the current senior County team players were participating in the event as they are required to for selection purposes. We are not sure if anyone this young has won a senior county title in the past, it is certainly unusual.


Emily Jane’s fantastic result came hot on the heels of Badminton success at the Junior County Championships on 21st September where Year 7 Holly Williams won two U13 golds, singles and doubles, two U15 golds singles and doubles, and then surprised everyone by winning silver and gold at U17 in the doubles and mixed, the first time an U13 player has won an U17 title. At the same event Emily Jane won gold and 2 silvers in her U17 age group: singles silver, doubles gold and then mixed silver behind Holly.


Many congratulations to Emily Jane and Holly.
