4 days, 20 courts, 32 teams and 321 players, the U18 Inter Counties Tournament (or ICT as it is better known) is the Badminton England competition highlight of the year.
Based in the Easter holidays teams descend on Nottingham for 4 days of competition, beating drums and blowing air horns and playing badminton as hard and fast and cleverly as they can. Wiltshire’s squad got to experience University Halls of Residence and made friends with many counties across the UK - it was as great a tournament for socialising, as it was for performance. Wiltshire’s team spirit shone throughout and was often supported by other counties, in particular Avon and Devon who became supporters cheering on Wiltshire matches - and which Wiltshire returned sitting on the side lines of Avon and Devon matches and offering support.
