Silver success for Smith

Ben SilverBen Smith won a well deserved Silver medal at the Luton U15 Bronze tournament on a busy weekend for FastStep players which saw six of our Elite squad in action.

Playing in the mixed doubles in Luton with fellow Sussex player Robyn Haysom, Ben qualified for the final in a tight box that went to countback. There they met another Sussex pair who had also escaped a tight box. In the final Ben and Robyn just lost out 21-17 but were rewarded with a Silver medal.

Meanwhile in Gillingham, Eva Craig picked up Silver in the girls doubles at the Kent U17 Bronze. The tournament was awash with Sussex players, 5 of them from FastStep (well done Amy, Ben, Casey, Monica and Eva), and a testament to the growing strength of badminton in our county.
