Wednesday 15th March saw Maccabi GB host the latest School Sports Tournament with Secondary Schools Girls Badminton and Table Tennis taking centre court. The event, at JFS, welcomed five schools who brought a total of over 100 girls to compete.
The tournament was split into Year Groups with Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11+ all competing separately. Each team played in a round robin with King Solomon, Hasmonean, JFS, Immanuel College JCoSS going head to head to take home on the silverware.
In the Year 7 age category, Immanuel B won the Badminton group whilst the Table Tennis section was won by JCoSS B.
In the Year 8 age group, the Badminton tournament was won by JCoSS, who looked strong all the way to their victory. JCoSS B claimed top spot in the Table Tennis after a grueling group stage.
In the Year 9 category, JCoSS swept the board winning both the Badminton and Table Tennis tournaments, while the Year 10 Badminton was won by a strong Hasmonean A team.
A solid JFS B team, featuring Team Maccabi GB’s Jazi Davidson, stood strong to brush away the rest of the competition in the Year 10 and 11 Table Tennis tournament, with King Solomon leaving with the Year 11 Badminton crown.
Jordan Sapler, Maccabi GB Schools Sports Coordinator, commented on the tournament, “This afternoon we have seen some great talent from the 100 young people involved. The quality of both badminton and table tennis has been of a very high standard today and is even more pleasing to see young people enjoying their sport in a fun but competitive environment.”
