FastStep’s U14 and U18 teams both finished runners up in the Surrey Plus junior badminton league final day in Epsom today.
The U14s started the day in joint first place out of 8 teams after the first event in January, but with the harder side of the draw to play.
They played brilliantly to beat Horsell A and Swifts B, then the crunch match versus Swifts A was always going to be close. We won the mixed and girls doubles and young Charlie Handel (2 years young) came within a point of winning the boys singles. The 3-2 defeat left FastStep runners up.
There was a similar story for the U18s, with 5-0 wins against all teams until the final crunch match against Swifts A. Amy Radford and Casey Coats managed a win in the girls doubles, but the other games were just too tough. The 4-1 defeat confirmed FastStep’s position as runners up.
