World Badminton Championships used as test event for London 2012 Olympic Game
*Live On Sky TV this Fri/Sat/Sun*
The BWF World Badminton Championships which takes place from:
8-14 August 2011 at Wembley Arena is being used by London 2012 organisers for vital testing ahead of next year’s Olympic Badminton competition.
The opportunity to introduce badminton to primary school children for an hour of hectic activity was a resounding success, and children and staff went away with a certificate of attendance, happy and exhausted – “when can we come again”! We are grateful to the N Wales coaches, the 5×60 officers and high school Leaders for helping to make the events successful.
There were some excellent performances by local players, a number of whom carried off gold and silver awards.
The climax of the 2010-11 Junior Badminton league season was the Gareth Coppack team tournament at Flint Pavilion leisure centre.
15 teams took part, fewer than usual due to a clash of the Easter holidays and the Junior Shuttle series finals at Cardiff.
Challenge Cup and Plate
Finals prove a big hit at Flint Pavilion:
This popular handicap knockout competition, played out over the season, came to a head with both sets of finals taking place at Flint Pavilion in front of a record large and enthusiastic audience.
The Plate final was contested between Holywell A (-10) and Flint (Scr) with Holywell getting the better of an under strength Flint side. In the final of the Challenge Cup event Deeside B (-8) fought a closely contested match overcoming Rossett (Scr) with the decision going down to the wire in the last match.
