Junior Player of the Year Award

The North Foreland Junior Player of the Year Award
This award is for a junior that has helped “over and above” to promote badminton for juniors, encourage them to play and then to play to the best of their ability. This is on a voluntary basis in their own free time.

2016 Winner Rachel Napier

Rachel has been working with new and young players in the Thanet Area. Rachel’s teacher commented “This season she has led her team to win the Kent School Games U16 competition” “As the team captain she began taking on some coaching, encouraging and motivating her players to follow the path she was taking and improve both their game and their tactical understanding.” This was done in free time on a voluntary basis.

The league restarted in the 2014-2015 season.
This season was won by Herne Bay A, they keep the trophy they won last year.
The Manwood teams are still some of the younger and newer players since many of their older players have graduated to senior badminton.
We were pleased to see Racqueteers rejoin the league after a break and managing to play some games too. Falcons however, are striving with a very young team and if they continue, will no doubt be returning to the top of the league as they were a few years ago.

The junior league is picking up pace, and hopefully all teams can play each other both home and away in the 2016-2017 season.

These clubs are encouraging other junior clubs to join the league for the forthcoming season.

Juniors Considering Joining League Clubs.

Linda has put together an information and guidance sheet for juniors who may be considering playing in a non-junior club / division of the NFRBA league. Read more...


This year we were able to field 3 teams: 2 in the U19’s category and 1 in the U15’s.
The teams consisted of
NF U19 A: Ethan, Fern, Georgina W, Morrison (captain), Rachel and Tom
NF U19 B: Andrew (captain), Georgia D, Georgia P, Goldy, Li and Oscar
NF U15: Abby, Adam, Alyssa (captain), Amy, Anna, Callum, Christopher and Harry - AKA the “A team Girls.”
The teams all looked united in their matching polo shirts (once a few were swapped around) and quickly gravitated to the courts to knock up.
The first clash was North Foreland U19’s A versus B. There was not a forgone conclusion as after 2015, the A team were not taking a win for granted. The strength and experience of the A team showed though and they won the tie.
The U19’s NF A beat NF B 7-0, Beat Orpington 5-2 but lost to Tunbridge Wells 5-2. The addition of Rachel and Tom to the A team were worth noting. Rachel soon showed determination and Tom was focused on winning. Ethan, Fern, Morrison and Georgina put on their usual strong performances and got through some tough ties with key wins.
NF B lost to NF A 0-7, Tunbridge Wells 0-7 and Orpington 0-7 but the scores do not show the number that went to three ends or the number that ended 21 -18 or 19. This is a young team, several players are only just 16 so the experience will stand them in good stead. The addition of Goldy and the 2 Georgias undoubtedly strengthened the team. Andrew and Li knew what to expect from having played in 2015 and this showed and helped plan the pairings. Oscar had to move up an age group. All played well and stood up well to the highly experienced opposition.
The U15’s beat Orpington 5-2, Medway 4-3 but lost 4-3 to Tunbridge Wells finishing 2nd overall and conceding the final game following an injury. One of the games worth noting was a nail biting girls’ doubles that was so close and hard fought, others came to watch from all over the hall. Well done Alyssa and Amy for winning it. The addition of Adam, Anna and Nathan this year make me optimistic for the 2017 team with them in it.
For the 1st year, 3 of the U19’s represented the area in the senior IR too.

Well done to all players.
