New East Devon U14 Girls and Boys Badminton champions

There were new East Devon Champions for 2018 in both the girls and boys East Devon U14 School Games badminton competitions

In the first School Games event of 2018 Exmouth Community College ended The King’s School’s reign in the boy’s competition whilst The King’s School girl’s team wrested the U14 Girl’s title from Colyton Grammar School.
Honiton Community College, The King’s School, Colyton Grammar School, Exmouth Community College, and Cullompton Community College all participated at the East Devon U14 tournament, which provided the initial qualifying stage for both The Devon School Games Finals and the English National Schools Championships. The tournament followed successful U13/U15 and U16 competitions held in the Autumn term in East Devon with over 50 players attending the U14 event.
The competition, introduced by BADMINTON England is now one of the largest school’s badminton events in Europe. The East Devon School Sport Partnership event catered for U14 girls’ and boys’ teams who played a mixture of 100 singles and doubles games during the afternoon event.
In the boy's competition Exmouth Community College were the stand out team winning all 4 of their matches with maximum points and not dropping a game throughout. Colyton Grammar School boys took second place with Honiton Community College in third place. There was a very close contest in the Girl’s tournament with Cullompton Community College, The King’s School and Exmouth Community College all very evenly matched. After some exceptionally tight matches The King’s School emerged in first place narrowly beating Exmouth and Cullompton who were 2nd and 3rd respectively. At the end of the afternoon’s play team managers were asked to present Spirit of the Games awards for passion and teamwork to one boy and one girl from their squads who had particularly demonstrated these two School Games qualities.
Both King’s Girls and Exmouth Boys will represent East Devon in the Devon School Games finals at Paignton Community and Sports Academy on Wednesday January 24th 2018. Well done to all teams who played some excellent badminton throughout.
A big thank you to Honiton Community College for hosting the event.
