On Monday 14th January 2013 approximately 90 young people participated in the Vale 5 x 60 badminton tournament which was held at Penarth Leisure Centre.

The tournament was divided into two age groups, with separate boys and girls sections. Each team included four players. Matches included playing two singles matches and three doubles with team members playing two games each. The winners of the group stages played in the semi finals and subsequent finals, which culminated in very exciting matches.

The winners of the girls' year 7 and 8 competition were from Cowbridge High School and the winners of the boys’ year 7 and 8 competition were from Stanwell High School.  Cowbridge also won the year 9 and 10 boys' competition with Stanwell wining the girls' year 9 and 10 competition.

The event was extremely successful. Ben Williams Active Young People Co-ordinator for the Vale commented that, "it's good to see so many young people playing badminton.  The competition was of great standard, well done to everyone who took part.” 

The next round will be held on the 5th and 7th of February at Penarth Leisure Centre
