Coopers Coborn were invited to Harrow School for their annual six-school badminton event, alongside Eton, Wellington, Charterhouse and John Lyon.

Two pairs represented Coopers, competing in five doubles matches over the afternoon.

The format was unusual, based on endurance as each game was played to 30 points, leading to some varied tactical decisions throughout.

Coopers amassed wins over Eton, Wellington, Charterhouse and John Lyon which was enough to secure them third overall, a superb result against the toughest opposition of the year.

The team was Ryan Bartaby, Brandon Ngooi, Sean Yakes and Ciaran Cheung.

Meanwhile, Coopers hosted the Havering sixth form badminton competition and after some high quality matches they claimed victory in the boys’ event and finished second among the girls.

Campion year 12 and year 13, plus Havering Sixth Form College, joined Coopers in the boys’ event, while the girls’ competition saw Coopers and Havering Sixth Form go head to head.

Coopers pipped Campion’s year 12s in the boys’ event, with Havering third and Campion’s year 13s fourth.

In the girls’ event it was Havering who got the better of Coopers.
