The boys Badminton team from Newton Abbot College triumphed at the South Devon Schools Badminton competition on Monday 13 October. In the run up to the final, the boys beat some tough competition from Teign School, South Dartmoor Community College and Coombeshead Academy and only dropped 2 games overall. The students, who are all in Year 11, are hoping to become County champions when they compete at the County Championships on Wednesday 11 February 2015.

These students performed extremely well on the day and managed to maintain their focus and concentration throughout. I am sure that they will face some difficult challenges in the next competition but this team has the potential to go far!” The boys ‘B’ team finished in a respectable fifth place on the day whilst the girls team finished in second place.
