Double success for Asmita
16 February 2018
Congratulations to Year 11 student Asmita who is celebrating becoming the U19 English national mixed doubles badminton champion.
Asmita competed in the U19 English National Championships in Milton Keynes over the weekend of 9-11 February. With the aid of her playing partner, William, the dynamic duo played extremely well, fending off the fierce competition in a series of matches to eventually knock out the no.1 seed in the final round.
In addition to this achievement, Asmita picked up a bronze medal in the women's doubles, just losing out 21-19 in the third set of the semi-finals.
It has been a fantastic and eventful weekend for Asmita and we send to her our warmest congratulations! We shall continue to watch her sporting career with interest.
