Alpha Age Group Series (June) Badminton Competition 2018
During the June Holidays, 5 Dunmanians participated in the Alpha Age Group Series (June) Badminton Competition held at the United World College located at Dover Road from 18 June to 23 June. After rounds of intense competition with local and overseas players, we are proud to announce these achievements:
1) Girls Doubles Under 17- 1st Runners-Up
Hu Tongyu (3H) & Chew Jing Wen (3J)
2) Girls Singles Under 14- Joint 3rd
Tan Wan Nee Ariel Rosabelle (2C)
Upon reflection, the sacrifice made by us to use part of our June Holidays to participate in this competition was well worth it. While some of us may not have achieved what we set out for, we learnt many valuable lessons that a normal classroom cannot provide.
During this competition, we have learnt that there are many competitors that we have to fight against in order to achieve what we want. We must also not be complacent with what we have achieved and constantly strive to do our best and improve. We have also learnt to be daring during competitions and not to be so nervous in order to play better in the match.
The vigorous training sessions both in badminton skills and physical stamina are were the reasons behind our achievements. While some of us were eliminated in the earlier rounds, we were still very proud of the ‘never say die’ spirit built in us to fight for every possible point.
To sum it up, we will reflect on our performance and for those who did not do as well this time round, we will wipe the tears and continue to train harder. While for those who won, we will continue to work hard and strive to achieve better.
