A Yorkshire honor for 14-year-old Pontefract badminton player Eva Hursthouse | Jobi Cool

Eva trains at Pontefract Squash Club between two and five times a week, spending an hour and a half training each time.

When he starts training with Yorkshire, he will leave the course for two hours because the training will be more tiring.

The youngster, who aspires to be an architect or sports psychologist when he leaves school, said he is privileged to be able to represent his home county by playing badminton.

Yorkshire will be represented by 14-year-old Eva Hursthouse, who has been playing badminton competitively for only five years.

“I really enjoy the competitive sports part that allows me to spend time with my friends as well. I have worked really hard with a lot of training and dedication, so to be selected is a great achievement for me,” he said.

A representative from Green Lane School in Carleton, which is part of the Pontefract Academies Trust, said the selection process to be chosen to represent Yorkshire was difficult; and the team managers then decided who made the cut.”

The teenager also hopes to continue playing badminton to see how far he can go with the sport and aims to win as much as possible while continuing to enjoy the game.
