On Tuesday 14th March a group of Etone pupils along with welsh champion Mr Kitching paid a visit to the All England Badminton Championship, the “Wimbledon of badminton”.
As the worlds oldest and most prestigious tournament our pupils were in awe of the talent displayed as they watched a mixture of doubles, singles and high stakes matches with pride and titles on offer for the successful players.
Not only was it fantastic for our pupils to see sporting at its peak level but it was also an opportunity to see what sporting events had in offer with stalls, interviews and of course some excellent freebies on offer.
Underpinning our Etone Values and Employability Skills, the championship consolidates the need for pupils to develop this skills and resilience and show the integrity expected of sporting professionals.
The event was enjoyed by all and we can’t wait for the next one!
