THE Borders Badminton Primary School Championships were held at Earlston High School games hall on Saturday.

A total of 21 boys and 11 girls from all over the Borders represented their respective primary schools in the singles-only competition.

There was some great badminton on show, with many promising young and new players taking part.

Harry Turnbull from Borders Badminton told us: "A good level of play was displayed, especially so in the finals."

The winner of the boys singles was Louis Kirkpatrick of Kingsland Primary School.

And the runner up was Aidan Richardson of Ednam PS.

Rowena Armitage of Kingsland won the girls singles and the runner up was Erin Doyle of Duns Primary.

The Colin Blaikie Sportsmanship Award was presented to William Mawson of Melrose Primary and best girl, Molly Sharp of Duns Primary.

Harry added: "Well done to all the players for making this such a great competition."

Christine Wylie, chair of Borders Badminton, thanked all the parents and junior players who helped score games.

She added: "A special thanks to Gordon McLean and Pearl Ford for their help running the tournament from the technical table and to Audrey Rae who worked tirelessly in the kitchen serving up hot drinks and cakes.

"Also a special thanks to Dave Burns for his work behind the scenes preparing the draw, running the tournament and scoring the finals."
