    Gold Medal Performances

    PG on 17/07/12

    Gold Medal Performance
    Seventy-five year six pupils from Pembroke Dock Community School gained Certificates for their “Gold Medal Performances” at the Badminton Team Event day at their local leisure centre on Monday July 16th. 

    Badminton Wales’ development co-ordinator, Phil Gwyther was delighted to have a great team of five Pembroke Junior Badminton Club players to act as team leaders and the three classes of ten year olds were put through a series of warm up routines and then skills including short serves, long serves and overheads where each team of five had to reach a total score of 125 shuttles on target to ensure they got their certificates. At the end there were some games to finish with some reasonable performances considering it was the first time for most.  

    The leaders worked hard throughout to keep everyone busy and despite the large numbers no one got clouted on the head with a racket and there was only one instance of someone losing their grip and a racket flying through the air.  So no bruises – just smiles all round.
