Medals at UK School Games

Some of the best players from the Uk were present at the Sainsbury 2012 School games held in London on the 7th and 8th of May. There were some notable results at the event in all of the disciplines. Results are as followed.

In the Ladies singles Rachael Darragh won her quarter final against Nicola Gresty of England 15-21 21-16 21-19 to secure a bronze medal. Rachael who is still under 15 put in a great performance in her Semi-final and could have gone one step closer however it was not to be her day as she went down 21-9 and 22-20 in a second set thriller. This was an excellent performance form Rachael as she will have other opportunities to go further in this event in the future.

In the men’s doubles Jonathon Harron and Ryan Stewart also took bronze beating Robert Clarke and James Middleton from Scotland 21-13 14-21 21-13. The Semi-final again was another epic match with Harron and Stewart looking to take a place in the final. Despite an extremely good performance the pair were just edged out 16-21 23-21 17-21.

In the ladies Doubles Alannah Stephenson and Keady Smith put a good run of form together to make the final. In the Semi-Final Alannah and Keady beat Ira Banerjee and Jessica Pugh of England. The match lasted 45 minutes and the girls showed good nerve winning 21-19 and 21-10 after losing a very close 22-20 first set.  In the final Smith and Stephenson faced Jordan Hart and Ellen Mahenthiralingam. The girls played some fantastic matches to reach the final but were unable to maintain their level. The Welsh pair took the final leaving Stephenson and Smith to take home a well-deserved silver with a final score line of 21-12 21-16 .
