Team : Colin, Fergus, Dave B, Helen P, Hannah P, Hannah B
Result: Win 12-6
I was not expecting much this week given that:
a. We were playing the second placed team.
b. Two thirds of the team played in the mixed tournament the day before
3. The other third had not played for 2 weeks.
..but it just shows how much I know as we ran out convincing winners! We did mix the team up bit to allow for Dave’s aching limbs, but this left the 2 young Hannahs to fend for themselves against some strong ladies which was a tough ask after their weekend exertions, but they did well getting to double figures in the second game. So we came through the levels 6-2 up, and got to 9 by the 6th set. Their second pair won 3 of their 4 mixed to keep us from getting all 4 points, most frustrating to loose the last game Arrrgghh! Best on the night was Fergus, Helen and Colin who all got 5.

First dropped point of the season but a win never the less. Best on night was Dave B, Hannah B and Helen P who all got 5. Big thanks to Alex for helping us out. Good effort all round. The next D Team match is more than two weeks away so we can put our feet up for a bit.

Battledore @ Home 7:30pm D4
Team : Dave B, Dave N, Colin, Hannah B, Hannah P, Helen P
Result : Won 15-3
Our top pair of Dave and Hannah Burgess were really on top form in this match, they both picked up maximums and underpinned the 6 Helen P picked up at 3rd lady . It was way past bedtime when this one finished, particularly for one of our younger players who I saw sneaking out a wee yawn on court. Next game marks the half way point for in the league season for the D Team.
Next Up: Tuesday 30th October 7:15pm
Springfields D @ Lostock
Team : Dave B, Dave N, Colin, Hannah B, Helen A, Helen P
Result : Won 14-4
Due to Injury and illness we needed to change the line up a bit this week, and the result was another solid performance and maximum points which was great. We got off to a flying start by winning all the levels to go 8-0 up, but it was a bit more of a battle in the mixed games, particularly against their top pair who won 3 out of 4. Best on the night for us was Helen P and Colin who both got 6 .
Next Up: Wednesday 24th of October
Whittle A @ Whittle 7:15pm D4
Team : Fergus, Dave B, Colin, Hannah P, Hannah B, Helen P
Result : Won 16-2
Although the score line looks convincing there was a lot of competitive badminton played during the match, and it was a great all round effort for us to come out on top. Best on the night were Helen, Hannah P and Fergus who all got 6 . Have to say that Mrs P was in sparkling form, fitness regime clearly paying off.
Next Up: Monday 15th of October

The only game dropped was in the first set, and that turned out to be the closest set of the night as the remainder were won more convincingly. Well done to Fergus, Hannah B, Hannah P and Helen P on collecting maximums.
