Yonex East of Scotland U13 & UI7 Junior Championships 2021

With last season’s Championships being cancelled due to Covid 19, we were delighted that this year we were once again able to host the Yonex East of Scotland Championships. This year the tournament is being split over two weekends with the Under 13 and Under 17 age group having taken place on the 9th/10th October and the Under 15 and 19 age groups taking place on the 6th/7th November.

The venue for this year’s events is once again the Jack Kane Centre. There was a very healthy entry for the event and we were delighted to welcome competitors from as far afield as Orkney to Newport in Wales. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing guidance from Badminton Scotland regarding Covid, there was no general access for spectators but as usual there were some highly competitive games over the course of the weekend.

In the under 13 age group, Tushara Senthilrajaram was a triple winner with Arnav Saraswat and Alfie Martin both winning two events. In the under 17 age group, Katrina Chan and Josh Taylor both won two events.

Lothian is very grateful to Yonex, ably supported by Gannon Sports, who have now sponsored this event for over 20 years.
