Rugby Youth Badminton Squad was well represented at the Under-16/18 tournaments held in Coventry on December 14th. These were restricted tournaments (meaning no county players) with entries from across Warwickshire.
In the U-16 boys tournaments Rugby were represented by Cameron Clark, Jujanna Deshpande and Nihal Singamsetty. Whilst no-one got through the group stage there were some close games against strong opposition. The doubles games were also close. Cameron and his partner beat the eventual silver medallists but were beaten by Jujanna and his partner. Valuable experience from their first doubles tournament. In the U-16 girls tournaments Rugby were represented by Akshya Subramanian, Akshita Modi, Zahara Anwar, Hollie Duckett & Ruby Slatcher. Hollie won all her group games and went on to win Silver in the singles tournament. Akshita also won all her group games, then faced the eventual winner but still claimed bronze in her first singles tournament. The girls also played well in the doubles. Hollie and Ruby winning Gold, with Bronze going to Akshya and Akshita.
Dylan Mistry and Rees Moor competed in the U-18 boys tournament. Rees won Silver in a close final game losing just 21-20. Rees and Dylan then won both matches in their doubles group but were unable to repeat that in the final, losing 21-19 to take Silver.
