North West Special Olympics Badminton Team ( NWSOB )
NWSOB was one of 12 sports representing the North West at the GB Special Olympic Summer Games in Sheffield last week. We arrived back on Saturday with the best ever results. It was the first time at a national event for 4 of our

players – Katie O’Neil, James Monk, Lewis Haywood (U16) and Ben Fairhurst (U16).

We only have 12 players in the squad (from Wigan, Bolton, Southport & St Helens) and would welcome new members from any area in the North West, with welcome arms.
We managed a grand total of: 5 Gold, 2 Silver and 5 Bronze medals, with impressive placing in all events. ( See attached for individual players’ results )
Several of our new members were pitched against more experienced and older players. Lewis won Gold in the M8 division Men’s Singles and Ben Fairhurst won the Bronze. They teamed up in the M4 division Men’s Doubles with a great result, gaining a Bronze. Katie O’Neil injured her back while playing with Catherine Carson (who had a heavy cold) but despite this, they beat the odds by winning Gold in the F04 division Women’s Doubles. Katie never complained about her injury and continued playing the following day in the F02 division Ladies’ winning her 2nd Gold medal. During the Mixed Doubles on the 3rd day, the Medics intervened and strapped up Katie, who returned to court after 30 minutes. Her partner Neil Brayford kindly retrieved all the grounded shuttles and the pair continued, wining an inspirational Bronze medal.
At the other end of the experience ladder, Emily Eyre & Hazel Johnson won their 3rd consecutive games Gold medals in the F01 Women’s Doubles. The following day Hazel went on to win her 2nd Gold medal in the F01 Women’s Singles. Robert Monk was only narrowly beaten in the final of the M04 Singles by John Hopper (South West).
The 3 team coaches are so proud of everyone’s performance. It will be a real challenge to improve on these achievements.
