Borders Secondary School Championships - 2018

The annual Borders Secondary School Championships was held at Earlston High School games hall on Sunday, 28th January, 2018. Berwickshire High School took eight of the twelve titles available, Peebles High School took two titles with the remaining two titles going to Earlston and Eyemouth High Schools.

With 60 entries from all nine of the regions secondary schools it was always going to be a busy day of competition. The event began at 9.30am with the singles tournaments before moving on to the level doubles by lunch time and final matches being played late afternoon with a 4pm finish.

The day was a huge success and the standard of badminton from these fine, young players was, at times, simply breathtaking. All the final matches were keenly contested with several close games. The committee, parents and helpers rallied round doing teas/coffees and cakes, selling raffle tickets, scoring games, and running the competition from the Technical table. Committee members are working hard to ensure that badminton continues to be promoted throughout the whole of the Scottish Borders for the years to come. Large tournaments such as this takes a lot of organising behind the scenes and people probably dont realise how much work goes into an event like this, which is all done on a voluntary basis.

Dave Burns, the groups coaching convenor thanked everyone who helped on the day to make the event run smoothly. Audrey Rae and Myra Younger worked tirelessly in the kitchen serving up hot drinks and cakes. Pearl Ford and Lynn Rhind helped run the tournament from the Technical table with Christine Wylie. Craig Pollock on microphone with match announcements and scoring finals with Rob Harvey and Gordon McLean. The tournament trophies were sponsored by Harry Turnbull Ltd, Consulting Civil Engineers. This will be the final year of the hall being sponsored by RP Adam and the committee are very grateful for their support over the past three years. Christine gave special thanks to Dave Burns, the groups coaching convenor, for all his hard work and late nights on preparing the pools to ensure that the championships ran smoothly on the day.
