My name is Katie Ovenden and I am a badminton player.  I started playing when I was 5 years old and started to play for the county U13 team when I was 8.  At 9 I made my debut in the Salisbury and District adult league.

I continue to play in the adult league and have helped my team to 2nd in the league for the past two years.

I have played in two International tournaments and recently played my 500th Badminton England match.

This year I have helped Hampshire U16s and U14s make the County Championship Finals.

In the future I hope to play for England and then GB at the Olympics.
