Shooting the Shuttle

During the recent tournament at IKNS, both groups of students emerged successful. In total, throughout both competitions, the students achieved six Gold Ribbons and five Silver Ribbons. A huge congratulations to all our winners and we hope to see them back competing next year. For many of the students this was their first experience playing outside of St Christopher’s School Badminton Club. For our youngest competitors this was a great learning curve and they showed resilience to overcome players who were older and more proficient. I am sure this will encourage them to train harder and focus on next year’s tournament where they will build upon this experience.
