Badminton players from Llandrindod Wells capitalised on home advantage at the Powys Schools Badminton Championships held at the town’s sports centre on Saturday May 4th, claiming 5 out of 11 of the titles up for grabs. 

The remaining titles were shared between players from Brecon, Crickhowell and Builth Wells, whilst players from Newtown and Machynlleth picked up titles in the Plate Competitions. 

Matt James, Powys County Council Physical Activity & Sports Development Officer, commented at the close of play: 

“We’re delighted to have had fifty young players competing here today, all of whom have shown a genuine passion for badminton.  The investment we have made in developing local coaches, inter school competitions and junior badminton clubs is definitely paying off, and it is really pleasing to see more players coming through from North Powys.”  

As one of Powys County Council’s focus sports badminton has benefitted from increased funding courtesy of Sport Wales for the past three years.  Revitalising the Powys Schools Championships has been a key goal of the Sport Powys team, who have been ably assisted by Gen Tyler from the Powys Badminton Association.
