Home Team: Minsthorpe Badminton Club
Away Team: Wrenthorpe Badminton Club
Report: With Wrenthorpe unable to host, Minsthorpe offered to swap their home and away fixtures so we didn't have to delay getting going. First game of the season and an opportunity to give a couple of club members their debut in the Barnsley League. First up Liz with our previous Captain Peter. Off to a cracking start with a 2 game win. Our second pair faired less well with a 3 game loss against a very strong Wrenthorpe second duo. Britney having a good start though and not phased by the pressure. Another couple of rookies in our third pairing and they also claimed a narrow victory. 2-1 to Minsthorpe after the first round of games. More good games followed with Wrenthorpe's second pair (Safi Haque and S. Wilson) proving too strong for all of us and winning all their three games. Minsthorpe did well in all the other games though to reach the magical 5 games with a game to spare. A final win for Minsthorpe in game nine gave us an overall 6-3 result. Good showings from both teams. Especially well done to the youngsters for Minsthorpe and hope this bodes well for this season and beyond.
