THE Herts 17-21 age group county badminton team reached the semi-finals of the National Championships held at the Herts Sports Village in Hatfield over the weekend.

The squad featured Hatfield's Nigel Tao, WGC's Charlotte Willis and Greg Roantree and Brookmans Park's Luke Donnelly and Rhian Blowers.

In their opening pool matches the squad beat Kent 5-1, Cheshire 4-2 and drew 3-3 with Gloucestershire to top their group and earn a place in the quarter-final knockout stages.

Essex were the county's opponents and they wasted very little time in seeing off their local rivals 5-1 to earn a semi-final berth against Yorkshire.

Herts lost their semi-final 4-0 to the eventual tournament winners Yorkshire.
