Badminton

The excellent Montgomery Sports Hall in school with its four badminton courts, ensures that badminton is played in both curricular PE and Games, as well as the extra-curricular clubs for both girls and boys. During PE time the pupils in Years 8-12 develop their skills over the allocated activity unit and look forward to playing the Inter House competition in their last lesson.

Regarding extra-curricular, U12, Minor (U14), Junior (U16) and Senior girls’ and boys’ teams regularly compete in the Ulster Schools’ Leagues playing in either division 1 or division 2 sections. There have been many successes in the past with the boys teams winning Ulster and All-Ireland senior titles in both league and cup competitions. Similarly the girls’ senior team were the first girls’ team to win the Ulster School’s senior cup.

U15 and U13 teams have also been entered in NEBSSA tournaments. At the end of the season the Allen Cups singles competitions are competed for at both senior (U18) and junior ages (U14).
