best five players, down to C Grade Division 2 for the Year 9 boys in the F Team. While the A side did not have much success during the season, it was a very young squad. These boys will learn from the trials of top-grade premier play and take these lessons into next year to prepare for a much better season, given their baptism of fire in 2021 where they finished 6th overall. The grade-winning B team had a very successful season, taking out the Boys B Grade Section 1 Division 2 competition after comfortably beating Cashmere, 6–0, in the final. The win followed a 3–3 semi-final, with a points countback powering the team through to a narrow 98 to 97 win.

The E and F teams finished 3rd in their respective grades, with the E team narrowly missing out on a berth in the final after playing the semi-final straight after a three-week lockdown that disrupted a run of wins. The D team was 5th= overall, having played several good games during the season to build up an improving group of Year 11 players. While the C team provided a floating pool of players – both up and down the ladder of our full squad – the side found it difficult to set up a run of many wins. Credit must go to these boys for their determined and fighting attitude throughout the season. Our thanks go to Nick Coxon for his late return – in his final year at Christ’s College – to Badminton

Hall. His assistance with managing our practice venue attendance and dispatch duties every Wednesday from College are much appreciated. Fellow manager Kate Belton must also be acknowledged for her cheerful approach to transporting boys around the city every week. Manny Collins has been ever the enthusiastic coach on our Monday practice days. We appreciate his constantly positive attitude and methodical approach to College training sessions.
