Exmouth’s young badminton ace Jonty Wright travelled to Winchester to play in the Hampshire Under-14 Open competition.

In the singles he won his box before going out in the later knock out stages.

In the doubles with Sussex based partner Andrew Harrison the pair won their pool without dropping a game.

In the semi-finals the pair played the number three seeds. They lost the first game, but then came back strongly to win the next two games and book a place in the final.

That final saw them up against a pair from Hampshire and it was a successful match for Wright and Harrison as they played some outstanding badminton, winning some length rallies on their way to a straight game success.
