British Championships Success

Posted on: November 7th, 2016 by David Finch

Saturday, 5th November saw the 2016 British Championships in Swindon. With over 300 competitors from as far afield as Devon to Cornwall it was always going to be an exciting day for our little team and it did not disapoint.

After weeks of intense dedication and training our intrepid team entered with lots of passion and determination and the results certainly showed.  From Hugo & Henry going crazy in the Mighty Matt Wavemaster category to Charlie, Emily and Millie performing to an amazing standard we are all incredibly proud!

A huge thank you goes to our die-hard team of family supporters who are such an important part of our MF Kent family as well as our dedicated Instructors who give up more time and energy than most people realise.

The day was also a very exciting step for our Junior Instructors; Lauren Coulthard & Charlie Hinder. With 10yrs of experience each and many tournaments under their belts they were given the opportunity to judge and referee and they did this with exceptional professionalism, enthusiasm and ability.  They certainly represented the MF Group and MF Kent extremely well and we are all so proud of this huge positive step forward.

We were also treated to a new Instructor Forms category which, as you would expect, was of exceptionally high standard.  Congratulations to Mr K.Homewood for coming out of retirement and performing so well – wonderful and inspiring to see.

Hugo & Henry worked so hard on their Hand-Drills for this competition and to stand in front of hundreds of people and perform as they did (and at such a young age) was a huge accomplishment.  Millie had some exceptional performances, including top 5 placing in the Extreme Kicking and top 6 pacing in the Hand-Drill category.  Emily had yet another successful championships which included competing against Charlie in the final of the Hand-Drill category and then clinching the British Title with Charlie in the Pair Forms.  An amazing performance from them both.  Charlie added to his championships haul with an inspired performance in the Hand-Drill category.

Our team consisted of:

  • Charlie Hinder: 2 x Gold
  • Emily Calder: 1 x Gold, 3 x Silver
  • Millie-Rose Hinder
  • Hugo Ross-Phillips
  • Henry Ross-Phillips

Small in number – huge in stature.

Congratulations to you all.
