The U11 English National Badminton Championships were staged this weekend at the Redbridge Sports Centre, in association with partners Yonex.
The entry for the U11 English Nationals has grown steadily over the last couple of years and this year saw 70 players competing for the U11 English National titles in singles and doubles.
It is a fantastic achievement for all the players to compete in the English National Championships and no doubt some stars of the future.
