Katie Ovenden has been busy and made some great progress so we thought we would share the update we received from her parents, please see below. We wish her all the best for her up and coming tournaments.
“She took part in the Wiltshire U14 championships last weekend and won gold in the doubles and silver in the singles.  She also played her first match for Salisbury Badminton Club in the adult league and won 3 of her 6 games. She has also been upgraded to H grade with Badminton England and had moved up to 8th in England at U13 and 287 for all women players.  It’s been a good start to the season.
 She has a busy few weeks ahead, playing at Milton Keynes U15 Silver this weekend, the Lillishaw U13 Gold the following weekend and the Hampshire U15 silver during half term.  These will all be very tough for Katie with players coming down from Scotland for the U13 Gold. 

Katie has also made it to the final stages of the Salisbury Journal Sports awards.”
