Busy weekend for FastStep players

There was plenty of badminton going on this weekend with FastStep players in action around the country.

Firstly congratulations to Monica Carr-Pacquay for being selected to play for Sussex U15s against Kent. Sussex won the tie in Gravesend 17-3.

At U13 there were good wins in the singles for Dhanush Thiagaraj and Ben Smith at the Home Counties U13. Unfortunately there was no doubles event as the organisers ran out of time – very disappointing for the boys.

In the U11 Home Counties, Isabelle Craig reached the quarter finals of the singles and won the plate competition in the doubles. The plate is a new initiative for some U13/U11 tournaments this year and is giving the players more games and more chances of medals which is great.
