Clenchwarton Primary after-school badminton club finish season with fun session

Clenchwarton Primary after-school badminton club finished their season with a fun games session including pirates, throwmington and killer.

Over the last six weeks coach Janis Baker has run a competition between the children.

The tournament comprised two groups with eight children in each, so they all played seven games to 15 points.

Narrowly missing out on a semi-final place in each group were Jake Mallet and Samuel Tennant.

But it was Fletcher Wenn and Ethan Beech who won all seven games in their respective groups, so in the semi-finals they played the runners-up from the opposing group.

Wenn played Ben Tennant, and at 13-all the game could have gone either way, but Wenn took the last two points to win by 15-13, taking him to the final.

Beech went up against an in-form Alice Wenn in the other semi-final. Wenn stormed ahead at the start, and although Beech caught up at one point, Alice pulled ahead again and won by 15-9.

Tennant and Beech played for third place, and it was a close 15-14 win to the former.

So the final was a family affair, between Fletcher and his younger sister Alice.

But the older sibling won the ‘bragging rights’ with Fletcher winning by 15-10.

Trophies were awarded to the winner, runner-up and third place, with another awarded to the most improved player of the 2018/19 season and this went to Ethan Beech.

The after-school club starts again on September 9.
