Swinging to Victory in County Competition

The Badminton Club enjoyed significant success at recent county competitions.

Daphne Ngan (N) won the Northamptonshire Badminton Association (NBA) senior ladies singles championship this year, after being runner-up last year, making her the best singles player in the county. She then went on to represent Northamptonshire in the second team in the Badminton England senior county competition. 

At the NBA U19 county championships on 11 November, Daphne also won the girls U19 singles title for the second year, her sister Dawn (By) came third. Brian Cheng (C) won the U19 boys singles, and was joined in the semis by Eugene Lau (StA) and Ian Chung (StA). In the doubles Brian and Ian were runners-up, with Krit Pichetvanichock (StA) and Eugene also making the semi-finals. Daphne and Dawn were runners-up in the girls doubles.

Dawn made her debut for the Shires League in the U16 county team against Warwickshire, winning both of her doubles games and narrowly losing her singles against strong opposition.
