Alannah Wins All England Under 17 Title

Written by | Sport

Alannah’s dream badminton season keeps getting better as she recently won the prestigious All England under 17 title at the Racquets Club defeating Caroline Black in the final.

The Lisburn youngster also added the Leinster under 15 singles, doubles and mixed doubles titles to her successes at the Ulster Open earlier in the year and is now looking forward to the Irish under 15 tournament at the Racquets Club this coming weekend.

As a Year 9 pupil at The Wallace High School she also represented the Irish under 17s in Slovenia and Principal Deborah O’Hare is obviously very proud of her: “This is a truly outstanding achievement for Alana, a self disciplined, talented and determined player. As Principal of Wallace I am delighted for her and very proud of her success.”
