Gwent’s youth badminton talent helped propel Wales to a great performance in the Under 13 Celtic Challenge, which was held in the Welsh Institute of Sport in Cardiff.
A supurb opening victory against Scotland’s Lothian region by a 13-2 scoreline was followed by another fine victory against the Irish region of Leinster with a similarly impressive 11-4 result.
This set up a nailbiting final match against pre tournament favourites Ulster.
After an exciting and tenacious contest, Wales emerged with a tremendous 11-4 victory retaining the trophy won the previous year in Dublin.
Well Done to the 4 players included, Kelly Saunders, Morgan Williams, Katie Whiteman and Tomas Whiteman
