All England Badminton Championships

Yonex All EnglandOn Wednesday the 8th of March, a group of 18 students were joined by Mr Sharp and Mr Payne for an exciting day at the Yonex All England Badminton Championships.

 

Held at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham and attracting the world’s top players, the Championships are listed as a MetLife Badminton World Federation Superseries Premier event, the significance of which is proven with only four other events being given this status.

 

The group got to enjoy a wide range of games during their time at the tournament, including a men’s singles match featuring the Badminton England Number 1 seed, Rajiv Ouseph.

 

After lunch, there was time to experience the retail village at the arena, then some more top-level badminton action, before boarding the coach for the journey back to Portsmouth.

 

A huge thank you to Mr Sharp for organising such a fabulous trip!
