Pearn Cup 2014

On Friday 20th June, staff and students teamed up to compete in the 4th annual Pearn Cup.

 On Friday 20th June, staff and students teamed up to compete in the 4th annual Pearn Cup. Twenty students were each paired up with a member of staff for a knock out badminton tournament taking place in the main hall. With defending staff champion Ms Mordan out of College that day, it was anyone’s game.

After some close calls, and utter thrashings, the field was whittled down to Matthew and Mr Clark Vs Mahmoud and Mr Wright. Some excellent play ensued. Matthew and Mr Clark put up a convincing performance with “Clarky” demonstrating some lovely footwork. In the end the combined determination of Mahmoud and Mr Wright proved too much for the plucky pairing of Matt and Mr Clark, who were beaten 2 games to love: 15-13 and 15-11. A close couple of games!

All entrance money will go on new equipment for the 6thForm Friday badminton club. A great time was had by all. Good luck next year Mr Wright.
