Badminton shuttle stars

The Southern Road badminton teams attended the first ever badminton competition at Newham Leisure Centre during March. All the children were excited to put their skills learnt during PE lessons to use in an intra-school competition. It was a huge success, and all the teachers commented on how well everyone’s badminton skills had improved by the end of the day. It was very pleasing to see some excellent team work and communication skills from both Southern Road teams.

Southern Road started strongly, winning their first four matches with ease, relying on their knowledge of the game, skill and anticipation to ensure the shuttlecock beat their opponent at every opportunity.

An excellent afternoon for all and a good starting point for the next badminton tournament in the summer.
