Aimie Whiteman and her doubles partner Lisa Curtin from Buckinghamshire have had a fantastic first tournament together at the U13 Badminton England Gold event in Surrey. They sailed through the tournament without dropping a single game, whilst convincingly beating some very experienced English pairings along the way. They gained their first gold medal together in an exciting final. Aimie was also unlucky not to make the semi-finals of the Singles, losing the deciding semi final game in a tight 3 setter. Below shows Aimie and Lisa with their gold medals.


Elliot Simmonds on the other hand, has also had a successful run of tournaments in the Badminton England Bronze events. Elliot came third in the Worcester Bronze on the 21st November 2015, as well as third in the Somerset Bronze on the 11th October 2015. Elliot will be looking to better these positions in his next tournament, in his quest for the Gold medal. The picture below shows Elliot being given his bronze medal in Somerset.
