Venue: Christie Miller Centre

Team: Mark Yeandle, Simon Ashenden, Jason Flagg, Andrew Carpenter, Wendy Field, Justine Trigg, Jane Lipton, Sarah Bryan

Back to the big old barn some warming Badminton.

Mark and Simon back together again. Mark nearly well again so playing more and Simon available - yay. Mark and Simon lost in a tight 2 setter and Jason and Andrew lost in an even tighter 3 setter to the Wilt second pair.

With only 1 of the usual ladies able to play, thanks to the super subs for helping us out. Wendy and Justine tried valiantly despite no experience playing together, but were unable to even get 1 set. Jane and Sarah had a barn storming win against the second pair in a 3 setter. Well done ladies!

Mark and Simon had a very tight 3 setter and counting the total points were down only 3 points, but the differences were enough for a loss. Jason and Andrew made it 3 out of 4 mens doubles going to 3, but all won by Wilts.

Could the ladies pick up a second win? Jane and Sarah came close, but both ladies were won by Wilts.

Wendy and Jason played first mixed but lost in 2, Jane and Simon put up a valiant effort and lost in 3, Sarah and Andrew who have played together at club were unable to pick up their match, Mark and Justine came the closest losing the 3rd end to 18. 

Result Wilts won 11-1
