TIS Badminton Champs

2013 Badminton Championships were held during Week 10 in the Gym at school. All students were given the opportunity to enter and compete in this knock-out championship competition.

The Boys draw was large with over 55 keen competitors this year. Boys Singles came down to a all Totara affair with the title going to Troy Morrell Rm 19 who defeated classmate Kieran Von Holstein-Rathlou in a skilled and competitive final 21/15, 21/18. In another close match for third place Matthew Brittain Rm 20 beat Adam Hitchiner Rm 19 21/18, 21/16

The Girls Singles title this year went to Felila Simanu Rm 42 who defeated Oceana Whaiapu Rm 11 24/23, 21/19 in a very tight final. Sahara Urwin Rm 12 beat Maya Palmer-Cannell Rm 26 for third place winning 21/17, 15/21, 21/8.

Medals for placegetters and a trophy for the winners will be awarded at our end of year Sports Prizegiving in December.
