Redbridge Badminton medal tally passes 50
The badminton players from Redbridge Sports Centre continued to collect medals at local an national tournaments and have now won over 50 medals during this current season.
At the Essex Futures Chelmsford 2* event, the players won medals in all the different age groups. In the year 4/5/6 girls singles, Sawoni Talati picked up a gold medal before moving up to the year 7/8 girls doubles and partnering Ashllyn Amirthananyagam to win silver medals. The year 7/8 boys singles saw Redbridge players dominate, with Simak Ahmed collecting gold, Rayyan Asif silver and Callum Hobday bronze. Asif won a gold in the boys doubles and Ahmed a bronze. Ahmed moved up to the year 9/10 boys doubles and won his second boys doubles bronze of the day. Manya Bhargava collected a bronze in the year 9/10 girls singles before Shahadat Ahmed collected gold in the year 11/12/13 boys singles and a silver in the year 11/12/13 boys doubles.
At the Essex U17 Bronze, Sanya Nayeck took her seasons tally to six with another gold and silver medal. Nayeck came second in the girls singles and paired up in the doubles to win a gold medal.
Advay Zore travelled to Milton Keynes to the Webber U11 bronze tournament, where he collected silver in the boy’s singles and a gold in the boys doubles.
Players are travelling to Leicester, East Thurrock and Welwyn Garden City over the next week as they continue to test themselves against the best local and national players.
Redbridge players dominate at the Essex Junior Restricted.
September was a great month for winning medals for the young badminton players from Redbridge Sports Centre.
The month started with Sajan Senthuran winning a bronze medal at the Milton Keynes U15 Bronze. Sajan is still an U12 player and beat players older than himself to collect a bronze after losing to the eventual winner in the semi final.
With 60 medals up for grabs at the Essex Restricted tournament during the last weekend of September, the Redbridge players looked to win as many medals as possible from the event held on their home courts.
The players in the U12 events got the weekend off to a great start, collecting 9 of the 12 medals that were played for. The boys singles saw Senthuran beat his Redbridge team mate Sidhaant Garg in the final before they paired up to win gold in the boys doubles, beating Rajvardhan Gavade and his partner in the final.
Tanishka Gavade matched Senthuran’s achievements in the U12 girls’ events, collecting two gold medals. Sawoni Talati and Sarah Yuen justified their number two seeding and collected silver medals in the U12 girls doubles.
Also playing on Saturday 28/9 were the U16 players. Athurva Zore dominated his events and collected three gold medals. In the boys singles final he beat team mate Nikhil Nayeck and with his doubles partner again beat Nayeck in the boys doubles final. His final gold of the day came with team mate Gopika Leneesh in the mixed doubles. Laneesh paird up with Sanya Nayeck to dominate their girls’ doubles group matches before the knock out stage. Their first test came in the final when they were pushed to three sets. With one gold collected, Nayeck collected her second gold of the day in the girls’ singles event.
The second day of the tournament saw the u14’s and u18’s take to the courts. Senthuran, not content with the two medals he collected on Saturday, collected gold in the boys’ singles without dropping a set. He beat fellow Redbridge player Stephen Mahendrakumaran in the final before pairing up with Mahendrakumaran to win silver in the boys’ doubles. Garg picked up his second gold of the weekend in the u14 mixed doubles. Neha Kavalam continued the Redbridge girls run of success in the girls singles events with a gold in the u14 event. She did not drop a set throughout and only conceded double figures to her opponent in the final. Kavalam paired up with Ashllyn Amirthanayagam and beat both seeded pairs before collecting their gold medals in the u14 girls’ doubles. Liam Purton completed the medal haul with gold in the u18 boys singles without dropping a set and silver in the u18 boys doubles.
With sixty medals up for grabs, the Redbridge Sports Centre players came away with 28. Martin Lawrence, badminton development officer and head coach of the PC was very pleased with the performances of all the Redbridge players. “The season has got off to a great start and the players will now see that the hard work that they put in over the summer has started to pay off. It was good to see some of the less experienced players taking part and competing against players with more experience than themselves. I hope the results will inspire the players to continue working hard in training and collect more medals throughout the season.”
