Hawick & District Primary School Tournament (2011)

Hawick & District primary schools held their annual badminton competition at Hawick High School games hall on Sunday, 20 March, 2011.

Throughout the day, play was hotly contested in the earlier pool games and knockout stages. Just under 20 youngsters entered the tournament, with the majority coming from Drumlanrig primary school, who play under the supervision of Colin Blaikie.

The final of the girls competition was contested between Christy Anderson and Rachel Goldie. The first end was a close, nervous affair with Christy establishing a narrow lead from the start which she managed to maintain all the way through the game and went on to win the first end 21-19. In the second end Rachel had trouble coping with Christy's deeper high serve and Christy went on to win the second end by a larger margin of 21-5. Congratulations to Christy Anderson for winning the girls competition.

The final of the boys competition was contested between Lewis Robertson and Ryan Johnston. In many ways the boys final was similar to the girls final with Lewis using his deeper high serve to his advantage. Despite Ryan's best efforts, Lewis managed to edge infront of his opponent in each end and went on to win the title with a 21-17, 21-14. Congratulations to Lewis Robertson for winning the boys competition.

Drumlanrig took the team award.

After the finals, Colin Blaikie gave the vote of thanks and Laura Turnbull presented the prizes.

The coaches would like to thank everyone that scored games throughout the day and Hawick High School for the use of the hall. The coaches would also like to thank all the parents and friends who came along to support the tournament.
