Well done to BGS Juniors Year 6 pupils Anvith and Prarthana on winning the silver medal in the IAPS Under 11 National badminton championships last weekend.
As part of the initial round of qualifiers they played against seven teams, comfortably winning all their matches to finish first in their group and progress to the quarter finals. They convincingly defeated opponents Bedford Prep 'B' 21–4 to face Bedford Prep 'A' in the semi final. A 21–6 victory saw Anvith and Prarthana reach the final.
Their opponents in the final were St Martin's. This was a very tough challenge as one of the St Martin's team is in the England Junior badminton squad and has been a national champion. Anvith and Prathana did very well, but eventually lost by two games to one to finish with the silver medal. This is an excellent achievement in this national competition and we congratulate them both on their success.
