Anna Collis tested her summer out-of-season skills at a fun Badminton Bonanza in Birmingham.

She competed in the under-15s (although only just 12) singles and doubles events.

Anna played four matches in her box to reach the semi-finals in straight wins.

In the semis she met an experienced 14-year-old opponent from Devon and won the game 21-9 to take her place in the finals. She played another girl from Lincolnshire and took the game 21-5 to be named the under-15 Yehlex Badminton Bonanza Champion 2008.

Anna also then competed in the doubles with her partner, Kirsty Muddell from Shropshire. They played four games in their box to take them comfortably through to the semi-finals which they won. But they lost the final 21-20 to a county under-15 pair from Oxfordshire.
