This year Forrest have entered two teams into the Greater Manchester Junior Badminton League. The League was established last year with the help of Badminton England to provide competitive opportunities for junior players in the Greater Manchester area. The League is organised into two different age ranges. The younger section is for players in school years 6, 7 and 8 (~U14s). The older section is for players in school years 9, 10 and 11 (~U17s). Forrest have entered a team into each section. Matches are played on 4 days spread throughout the year at a central venue, Belle Vue Leisure Centre. Each match consists of 2 singles games and 3 doubles games.
The first match day was held on Sunday 7th November with both teams playing well. Match results were as follows:
Forrest 3 - 2 Partington
Forrest 3 - 2 Futures
Forrest 2 - 3 Sale
Forrest 0 - 5 Futures
Forrest 5 - 0 Bryn B
Forrest 3 - 2 Sale
Well done to all of our juniors. The next match day is on Sunday 9th January 2011.
