Yesterday the Intermediate Badminton Team swung by Keswick High School to hit some birdies at the Area Tournament. We had a full contingent, 2 male, 2 female and 2 mixed teams. This year’s tournament was host to over 130 badminton players playing on 8 courts in what could be only be initially described as organized chaos. Each team was guaranteed 2 games in the double elimination tournament and almost every team played past their two game minimum.
Our W J Watson team was:
Brooklyn the Boss
Logan Bottomless Pit
Emily Just Emily
Olivia Victory Dance
Jimmy Isaiah Thomas
And let’s not forget about Annette, because you can’t play badminton without a net.
The Badminton Club will be meeting in the gym on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:45 until 4:30, starting March 27. It is open to Intermediate students in grade 7 and 8. The only equipment you need is a pair of running shoes.
