Liskeard School & Community College student Cara Collins is set to compete in an international Badminton tournament in Germany in June, following a year of incredible success.

Cara, who is in Year 10, will compete in the Babolat German U17 International in Refrath, near Cologne, between Wednesday 6th and Sunday 10th June. Entering this tournament is a step towards further recognition for Cara, bringing her closer to being considered by Badminton England.

This tournament follows the conclusion of the County season, which has seen Cara achieve a number of tournament victories, including the Senior Ladies’ and U21 Women’s singles titles, along with U18 and U16 successes in both singles and doubles competition. Cara was also awarded the U16 Sportsmanship trophy for encouraging and supporting her team mates.

The U16 doubles success is a particularly notable victory, as Cara's original partner had to unfortunately pull out at short notice, so she was partnered by Emily Geach, Year 9 student at Liskeard School. The county coaches, players and parents could not believe Emily had only played a few matches, as she performed tremendously.

We would like to congratulate Cara and Emily on their success, and wish Cara the best of luck for the upcoming tournament.
