Home Team: Manvers
Away Team: Honeywell Badminton Club
Report: Manvers B came up with their first win of the season with some of the pre-season rust and metaphorical blubber finally dropping off Bell and Shaw. The closenesss of the contest was setout in the first match with Steve "Dizzy" Lo and Darren "the perfect husband" EllisTownsend just edging a 45minute 3 setter against Simon Eaden and Wayne Hartson with the final end going to the Manvers pair 28 -26. Shaw and Parker pushed the limits of human endevour and physical fitness with two 3 setters. The end 6-3 win saw all Manvers pairings picking up 2 rubbers and the Honeywell pairings 1 each with only 14 points seperating the teams at the end of the evening
