Hawick & District Primary School Championship (2012)

Hawick & District primary schools held their annual badminton competition at Hawick High School games hall on Sunday, 22 April, 2012.

Despite the number of entries being slightly down on the previous year, all the youngsters that came along played several games of badminton throughout the day. The initial stages of the tournament was played in round robin pools with 7 girls in one round robin and 6 boys in the other. Play was hotly contested in the earlier pool games.

Following the pool games 2 girls and 2 boys were eliminated from the tournament. Leigh Chalmers beat Rhea Middlemass 21-18 to get through to the semi-finals. The first and second seeds in the girls competition won their semi-finals to progress to the final. Christy Anderson beat Philippa Robertson 21-9, 21-9 and Laura Webster beat Leigh Chalmers 21-12, 21-8. The first and second seeds in the boys competition also won their semi-final games. Lewis Robertson beat Greg Johnston 21-9, 21-8 and Paul Goldie beat his younger brother Martin 21-4, 21-4.

The final of the girls competition was contested between Laura Webster and Christy Anderson. The standard of play was very high throughout the girls final. Laura appeared to have the edge over Christy with a deeper high serve which Christy struggled to cope with. Christy tried to vary her serve with the occasional low serve but she unfortunately hit a few of these into the net. Laura managed to edge in front in each game and she went on to win the match 21-10, 21-15. Congratulations to Laura Webster for winning the girls competition and to both girls for serving up a cracking girls final.

The final of the boys competition was contested between Lewis Robertson and Paul Goldie. Once again the standard of play was very high throughout the boys final. The first game was a tense, nervous affair with neither player able to dominate play. Lewis managed to win the vital last few points to win the first game 21-19. Despite Paul's best efforts in the second game, Lewis managed to edge in front of Paul and Lewis went on to win the second game 21-15. Congratulations to Lewis Robertson for winning the boys competition and to both boys for giving the spectators such an exciting boys final.

Drumlanrig took the team award.

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