Organisers delighted with entries in Caithness U11 badminton championships
The Caithness junior badminton championships began last weekend with the under-11s competing at Thurso High School games hall.
Organisers were delighted to see a great number of entries for both singles and doubles. There were also several young players playing in their first tournament and they did very well.
There were several close games and each point counted towards overall positions. Freya Swanson (Bower) took gold in the girls' singles, beating Ava Cook (Halkirk) 11-4 in the final. Freya and Ava paired up to win gold in the girls' doubles, beating Rebecca Cook (Halkirk) and Leoni Kennedy (Halkirk) 11-4.
The boys' singles final was won by Charles Fryett (Ormlie), defeating Toby Sutherland (Castletown) 11-7. Charles with his partner Mathew Cook (Halkirk) went on to win the boys' doubles against Jonah McColm (Ormlie) and Toby Sutherland 11-6.
The U13 championships will follow this Saturday at the Wick community campus.
