Badminton News, Club News



Thank you to all the members who took part in this year’s Hiro Yamamoto tournament on Sunday the 4th of November.

With 31 doubles entries we had a total of 90 matches to be played on this very exciting and busy Sunday at the club.

It was great watching the different grades battle it out on the courts, with the top grade entries being challenged by the lower grades and some tough handicaps to overcome.

The men’s doubles event was won by Richard Southward and Phil Hector, who beat Simon and Daniel Woodhouse in a three set final 22/24, 21/14, 21/18.

The ladies event was won by Surabi Taori and Katy Ann Jennings, against runners up Anita Sadler and Emma Perman 21/19, 21/17.

All winners and runners-up received club credit vouchers for the bar and cafe. The winners also received the Hiro Yamamoto trophies and will have their names added to the ‘wall of honour’ display at the club.

We hope that everyone enjoyed the tournament and that we will also see more ladies entering next year’s event.
A really fun day of badminton with lots of excitement for all!

Best Wishes,

The Badminton Committee
