Liskeard School and Community College student Ellie Reed has had a tremendous few months and achieved several of her personal goals in badminton - the highlight being the quarter finals of the Under 19 Nationals at the National Badminton Centre in Milton Keynes with her partner Jess Hodge from Devon. Ellie had a fantastic experience and rose to the occasion; reaching the quarter final at this level was a remarkable achievement. Ellie managed to record the matches in preparation for her A-level PE.

Ellie also reached Gold Star in the Under 17 Cheltenham Gold in the singles where she then, unfortunately, drew the No. 1 seed. Ellie took a game pushing the number 1 seed all the way into a deciding third game. Ellie then reached the quarter finals with Liskeard student Cara Collins in the doubles. The mixed event was also a great success with Ellie and her partner Owen giving the number 2 seeds a really good game.

Ellie is enjoying her second season with Team Devon who have a tremendously strong County team with great depth throughout. Team Devon have won the Shires League and the South West Counties’ League beating Avon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Gwent, Cornwall and Devon 2.  In the matches Ellie has played for the Shires, she has not dropped a match. Team Devon will now progress to the play offs in April. Ellie has also been selected to play at the Under 18 ICT Tournament in Nottingham at Easter where only the top 5 players are selected.

Ellie is currently ranked Number 1 in Devon for all three disciplines: Singles, Doubles and Mixed. She is graded as a Gold player for both her singles and doubles events.

Liskeard School staff and students and the Liskeard community are very proud of Ellie’s achievements and look forward to her bright future in the sport.
