On Monday the 11th eight keen young Badminton players from Te Puna School embarked on an adventure to face some of the Bay Of Plenty's best up and coming Badminton players. Being just a small school we only sent one team where as some of the other larger schools like Bethlehem sent multiple teams.
Our first experience was a bit rough as we were all beaten about twenty one four so that didn't help to boost any morale in camp Te Puna, where as the second and third matches went much better most of us won our games with great results in the doubles as well.
All in all it was a great day we learnt lots of skills on the fly and by watching the more experienced players play there games and if nothing else, it beats being at school all day.
