St Andrews D vs Team 2000 D

Team : Daz, Graham, Colin, Helen Rimmer, Jean Rimmer, Helen Pallett

Result : 13-5 Win

Good win on the night at an airless Wellfield. Daz and HP both picked up 5, but he who will remain nameless managed to pick up 6 for a change. So well done to him, and thanks to Daz, Graham and Helen for their help! Keep those 4 pointers coming…

St Andrews D vs Evergreens C

Team : Daz, Graham, Colin, Jane, Jean, Helen

Result : 16-2 Win

Comprehensive win against weakened Evergreens side. Class told on the night with Jean Rimmer and Helen Pallett taking 6 each. Only the old men of the team and the up and coming youngsters playing at 1 dropped games. Our best winning margin of the season so far sneaks us up in to 4th place in D5. Great stuff!

Congratulations to the 5th Team

I would like to add my congratulations to Monday’s  night’s winning team and also the whole squad for the way you have all improved so much in half a season. From watching and playing at club nights and partnering  several of you in 4th team matches I have  been really  impressed with your  developing skills, enthusiasm, humour and, not least, your excellent on-court conduct.

This is the largest  group of young players that I can remember playing at the same time for the club (and I have been around since Mark was a lad!) so it certainly bodes well for the future of St Andrews Badminton Club.  The only worry  I now have  is that my place in the 4th team is becoming vulnerable, but I am up for the challenge!

We must also recognise Helen’s dedication and coaching skills which have given you the opportunity to play competitively and improve.

Thanks Helen.
