Tournament is a smashing success

smashing successTHIRTY players from across Pembrokeshire took part in the first of two district inter school 5 x 60 badminton tournaments recently.

Three teams from three schools; Ysgol y Preseli, Greenhill Tenby and Pembroke – took to the courts at Tenby Leisure Centre.

Pembroke School won the pairs tournament with Tenby second, while Pembroke’s Gregg Davies won the knockout singles event beating his school team mate Tom Millar in the final.

The competition was organised by Sport Pembrokeshire’s 5 x 60 team and Badminton Wales’ Phil Gwyther.

Active Young People Manager Matt Freeman from Sport Pembrokeshire & Pembrokeshire County Council’s sports development service said the competition had been a real success.

Badminton is proving to be very popular with pupils and we hope to organise more events for them. All pupils were informed of their nearest club and it’s hoped that they will continue to play within the county club structure.
