Victory for 9 Year Old Chilwell Olympia Badminton Player

06/10/2016 - A 9 year old Badminton Player who plays at Chilwell Olympia Badminton club is celebrating success after a double win at the Under 11's English National Badminton Championships.

Lucy Brierley, from Wollaton, won not only the singles title at this year's competition on 11th September, but also the doubles with partner Carly Stevenson, aged 10, from Leicester.

She entered the competition seeded number 1 in singles and had to win all 3 matches in her group to proceed to the final.

Her dad, Andy and sister, Megan, were court side providing the coaching during the matches while mum, Alison, watched from the balcony. 

Lucy attended her first badminton session aged just 5 years old and a couple of years later became a member of the club, which trains at the Sports Centre. Lucy now trains a minimum of 5 hours per week and regularly enters Badminton England tournaments held at the weekends.
