Badminton PL4S Players Set Sights On National Finals

Over 80 students took part in the National Junior Badminton League in conjunction with Badminton England and Premier League for Sport (PL4S) at John Spence Community High School. 

The event, which is the first of three,  was aimed at under 14’s and under 16’s that take part in weekly PL4S Badminton satellite Clubs at their school.  

The aim of the league is to provide an opportunity for all PL4S participants who currently attend satellite clubs to take part in organised competition against other schools.

The next tournament takes place on 15th March at Heaton Manor School with the penultimate fixture taking place at Burnside Business & Enterprise College on 5th April, where the team one of the schools will be selected by Newcastle United Foundation to represent them in a National Badminton event taking place in Milton Keynes in May.

Lisa Bell, Senior Project Co-ordinator at Newcastle United Foundation, said: “It was brilliant to see these players demonstrating everything they have learnt in their weekly satellite clubs in a competitive tournament. These events will help them develop their skills even further and I’m looking forward to seeing who makes their mark in the next two tournaments before we pick a team to represent us in the national finals.”

Jenna Smith, Project Manager Badminton England, added: “It’s great to see such positive work being done by Newcastle United Foundation to support young people to play badminton and compete in the National Junior League. We look forward to welcoming them to the 2017 finals in May at the National Badminton Centre, home of English Badminton”
