BLENCOWE SUMMER BADMINTON TOURNAMENT
Ian Parker; Jodie Talbot; Val Urwin; Matt Hamblin; David Baker; Christine Marshall; Jacob Elliott; David Morley & Christian Morley
Blencowe Badminton Club held an end of Summer Season Badminton Tournament on Wednesday 31st August 2016 in QEGS Sports Hall, Penrith to celebrate a very successful summer season of badminton. An average of 30 plus players played each week throughout the summer with 46 players on one of the evenings. Regular Club members were joined by players from other clubs throughout Eden as well as new players and visitors to the area.
For the Tournament, 24 players were split into 2 groups, and paired off as doubles – mixed, men’s or ladies and handicapped. They then played against pairs within the same group.
In Group A – closely fought and long games meant that each pairing only played a total of 4 games and the winners were decided without a final – being Jodie Talbot and Ian Parker who were the only pair to win all of their 4 games. Runners up in Group A were father & son pair-David & Christian Morley.
In Group B, after playing 5 games, a final was held between Val & Matt Hamblin against Christine Marshall & David Baker with Marshall & Baker winning 21-6.
Prizes were awarded to the winners and runner-ups and a special Junior Prize was awarded to Jacob Elliott for accumulating the highest score amongst the Junior players.
Thanks and a bottle of wine were given to QEGS Sports Hall, Caretaker, Peter, for all his support at the Club nights.
The 2016-17 Season starts at Blencowe Badminton Club from Wednesday 7th September, from 7.30pm to 10pm every week until the end of April 2017 – except for Xmas & New Year.
