THIS TERM badminton, under the guidance of Mr. Shakeshaft, was given recognition as an official school sport, for which colours may now be awarded.
During the term we played four games, winning three and losing one, a further fixture against Culford being cancelled, but it is hoped to play against this school next season. The School was represented by Pinney and Stevens; Leach and Worsley; and Smith G. and Glaysher. Without wishing to assess the individual merits of any of the team, I think that mention should be made of Leach, who, despite his lack of age and size, more than held his own against the best of his opponents.
Two of the fixtures were played at home in the gymnasium despite the girder obstructions, resulting in the frequent calling of "let"; nevertheless the visiting teams took little notice of them. The match against Smart Street away proved to be the only game played where there were no obstructions.
I am sure that all members of the Club will join me in expressing our thanks for Mr. Shakeshaft's work in the Club.
