Surrey Para-Badminton Tournament

Badminton News

  The Surrey Para-badminton tournament took place on Saturday 19th March 2016.  There were six women and eleven men entered into seven events.  The tournament was played in the greatest of spirits with a lot of laughter and also some coaching sessions on the serve for some of Wimbledon’s junior players.  At the last minute we added a Wheelchair 1/2 category and ran a combined mixed doubles event where the area of play was taxing for all players. Two umpires, Ron Wood and Colin Murray attended to make the finals even more special.  Finals were played in four events.  The referee was Judith Fisher with support from Bex Morrison.
