An Evening of Shuttlecocks & Rackets

Yesterday Mr Slack had the pleasure of accompanying a few very keen students to a Badminton fixture at Wales School. It was an absolute delight to see students who wouldn’t normally participate in extra-curricular activities coming out of their shells, getting involved and doing themselves & the school proud.

After many weeks of pestering from the students, the fixture was arranged and they were faced against some equally enthusiastic players from Wales. Most of them were extremely talented, played for their own badminton club and would have given me and Mr Fisher a run for our money.

Our kids showed true spirit pairing up and playing 2 against 1 to make sure everyone got a fair game. It was especially nice to see Isbah being talked into picking up a racket and getting involved despite her nerves!

The evening was an absolute success with the coach from Wales eager to return the favour and bring his students to Clifton for a rematch after Easter!

Well done to the following students:

Saman
