Badminton Teams KS2 County Champs
Congratulations to our Badminton teams which are currently going from strength to strength. Following the boys recently being crowned Redbridge School's League champions, the KS2 girls and boys teams travelled to the iconic Copper Box arena, scene of so much memorable Olympic action, for the second (County) round of this year's Center Parcs' National Schools Tournament. On Tuesday 25 February they represented Redbridge against the best schools in other east London boroughs, including Newham, Waltham Forest, Havering and Greenwich. Both teams had a really successful day, winning all their matches to become the County Champions. The girls didn't drop a game all day, while the boys only lost 3 of their games. Both the teams now progress to the Regional Round which will be held at another famous sporting venue, Crystal Palace, in April. Team coach, Mr John Raw, said, "I was thrilled with the performance of the squad in what is our first venture as a school into the National Schools' Championships. They proved themselves to be more than worthy of playing in the Olympic venue of the Copper Box!"
