Colyton Grammar sweep  U16 Girls and Boys badminton titles

Badminton in East Devon continues to grow

Colyton Grammar School, Exmouth Community College, Honiton Community College, The King’s School, Cullompton Community College and Uffculme School all participated at the East Devon U16 tournament, which provided the initial qualifying stage for both The Devon School Games Finals and the English National Schools Championships. This was another well- attended badminton event for East Devon with some great badminton on display and over 50 players involved in the 21 matches and 105 games played.

The competition, organised by BADMINTON England is one of the largest schools badminton events in Europe. The East Devon School Sport Partnership event catered for U16 girls and boys teams who played a mixture of singles and doubles matches at host site Uffculme School.
In the boy's competition Colyton Grammar School took the U16 East Devon title in an exciting final defeating last year's champions The King's School with a gripping 3-2 victory. Uffculme School took 3rd place as they edged out Cullompton Community College with a narrow 3-2 win which went to the final game! . Last year’s girl’s winners Exmouth Community College faced Colyton Grammar School in the final match of the girl's round robin tournament with both sides unbeaten. However, Colyton dominated the deciding match with a determined all round team effort. Exmouth took second spot with The King’s School in third place. Colyton girls and boys will represent East Devon in the Devon School Games finals at Paignton Community and Sports Academy on January 24th 2018 and we wish them the best of luck in the County School Games finals.
Well done to all teams who played some great badminton in a terrific spirit throughout.

A big thank you to Uffculme School and Simon Lane for hosting the event.
