Little Parndon & Cooks Spinney win Badminton

A HUGE thank you for everyone who attended the Badminton Festival this Friday; with 16 teams (5 players and 120 games – yes 120 individual games) it was always going to be a big ask to get this played in just over 2 hours! As ever, with the newer events that we organise, I shall take on board any feedback and think carefully about altering the schedule, timings, groupings to suit the venue and time available - whilst trying to ensure that we keep high levels of participation and a good standard of play. So apologies to any team who booked on or arrived expecting a morning of coaching followed by some games; this may have been the original intention but it simple wasn’t possible this time around.

That said, the 16 teams that entered managed to perform really well; the staff from schools who supported the event by umpiring and organising their children were amazing – we simply couldn’t have achieved the success without you. Having played in 4 groups, with 5 matches against each school the children did really well, making improvement throughout. The group results were as follows:

Group 1

Cooks Spinney A – 7 points (winners on head-head results)

Tanys Dell A – 7 points

St Albans – 7 points

St James 3 – 3 points


Group 2

Hatfield Heath A – 9 points

Hare Street B – 5 points

Cooks spinney B – 7 points

St James 2 – 3 points


Group 3

The Downs – 9 points

Hare Street A – 7 points

Hatfield Heath – 5 points

St James 4 – 3 points


Group 4

Little Parndon – 9 points

St Lukes – 7 points

Tanys Dell B – 5 points

St James 1 – 3 points


The four group winners, progressed to the semi-finals, where Little Parndon triumphed over The Downs and Cooks Spinney A outscored Hatfield Heath A; both victors will represent Harlow at the Level 3 County Finals.
