West Norfolk Junior Badminton’s Harry Wakefield (9) from Feltwell became a double county champion at the Under 11 Norfolk restricted tournament in Norwich.
In the boys’ singles event, Wakefield and Luc Widdowson from North Wootton were unfortunately drawn in the same group, and after winning three games apiece, Wakefield just took an incredible deciding game 21-20.
Lynn YMCA club’s Jude Lindsay won two of his games in that group. YMCA’s Jack Harvey was unlucky not to progress from his group, after winning two games.
Wakefield won his semi-final 21-16 and defeated Adithya Velu from North Norfolk 21-17 in the final.
In group A in the boys’ doubles Harvey and Widdowson won three out of four games in their group, which Wakefield and his partner Rohan won. In group B, Jude Lindsay and Alex Holman won two out of four.
In the semis, Harvey and Widdowson just lost 21-17, but Wakefield and Rohan reached the final, which they won 21-20.
