Hawick & District Primary School Championship (2013)

Hawick & District primary schools held their annual badminton competition at Hawick High School games hall on Sunday, 31 March, 2013.

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 only 3 girls in one round robin and 8 boys in another two pools. Play was hotly contested in the earlier pool games.

Rhea Middlemass beat Amber Malcolm 21-17 to progress to the girls final. Leigh Chalmers progressed to the final following the pool games. There was a surprise result in the quarter final stage of the boys competition when seeded player Martin Goldie lost to Liam Caldwell 21-17. In the boys semi-finals, Paul Goldie beat Anthony Webb 21-7 and Liam Caldwell beat Greg Johnston 21-19.

The final of the girls competition was contested between Leigh Chalmers and Rhea Middlemass. Despite a good start by Rhea which allowed her to edge in front in the first game of the final, Leigh appeared to overcome her nervy start and began to claw her way back into the final. Leigh's play continued to improve as she became more confident and she went on to win the final match 21-19, 21-9. Congratulations to Leigh Chalmers 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 Paul Goldie and Liam Caldwell. Once again the standard of play was very high throughout the boys final. Unfortunately, Liam was unable to cope with the powerful smashes and well executed drop shots produced by Paul throughout the final. Paul won the first game 21-3. Despite Liam's best efforts in the second game, Paul continued to dominate play and Paul went on to win the second game 21-14. Congratulations to Paul Goldie 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 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.
