The Michel Sobell Leisure Centre, Aberdare provided a perfect venue to hold this year’s RCT Badminton competition for the year 7/8 boys and girls. The day saw over 60 pupils taking part in Badminton and all having their fair share of healthy competition and all had said they had enjoyed themselves.
The hard fought group games came down to eventual winners in both the girls and boys category. The girls competition was played a group format of five teams all playing each other in matches throughout the morning/afternoon with Bryn Celynnog marginally beating Garth Olwg to the top of the table.
The boys competition saw two groups of five teams participating against each other throughout the morning/afternoon with Garth Olwg (Group A) going through to play Bryn Celynnog (Group B) in the final. With Bryn Celynnog taking a 1-0 lead on games in the final, Garth Olwg came back to earn a 4-1 win. Both Bryn Celynnog and Garth Olwg shall now go forward to represent RCT schools in the South East Regional finals in February 2012.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Badminton Wales and in particular Martyn Lewis for his assistance in organising and running of the whole day in partnership with the 5×60 team.
