Last thursday saw the South west finals of the National Schools Championships at Exeter University. In the Key Stage 3 Girls event King Arthurs achieved a very creditable runners up spot, with a team made up of experience and complete novices. Jenny Naylor and Helen O'Rourke used their knowledge to guide Ellie Farrell and Kathryn Loader (in her first ever badminton competition!) through to the final, with Helen and Kathryn winning the decidng semi final game 21- 20.  In the final however they came up against England no 2 Ira Banarjee, and 3 other county players, but still fought and only lost the match 3-2. Well done girls.

Report on the other 3 Somerset teams will follow.
