The most promising girl and boy Under 12 badminton players in Northumberland were honoured recently at a presentation ceremony hosted by North Tyneside Council.
The awards were set up by a former Chair of the Council in 2003, and are presented each year to the two players judged to be the most promising and to have made the most progress during the season . The Vice Chairman of the Council, Councillor Janet Hunter, hosted the ceremony and presented the awards to Asmita Chaudhari and George Moran, both from Newcastle. Asmita took the award for the second time, having had another outstanding season. Asmita is one of the top Under 11 players in England and has had several tournament successes, some of which have been against older players!
