SCIBERRAS SHINES IN THE U/13 CATEGORY

Lauren Sciberras stole the limelight in this year’s Under-13 Girls’ Singles category organised by the Badminton Malta.

Having overcome Stephanie Paris and second seed Lauren Azzopardi in the initial rounds, Sciberras made it to the final where she faced first seed Sarah Azzopardi.

The latter could not have hoped for a better start when she cruised through the opening set, winning it 21/9.

However, Sciberras reacted strongly. Adopting a more attacking style of play, she managed to bring the match on an even keel by taking the second set 21/16.

The third and decisive set saw both contestants play their hearts out, with the partial score swaying one way and the other throughout; but, in the end, it was Sciberras who made it her own, taking it 21/17, thereby winning the first National Title of her budding sporting career.

It is relevant to highlight the fact that Sciberras as well as Sarah and Lauren Azzopardi are all on the books of Msida Arrows Badminton Club, which is very active in the development of local junior talents.

The Club expressed its satisfaction at the high standard of play as well as at the positive result obtained by its players whilst auguring that this would motivate them to higher achievements.

The Club also underlined its continued commitment to provide its promising junior players with all the possible opportunities for their future development.
