Two teams from Grantham Badminton Club contested the Newark League’s Woodward and Cobb Tournament at the weekend, with mixed results.
The first team played off a handicap of -8 and struggled against the opposition. Susie Steeples, Jaz Gilbert, Jan Bailey and Ben Johnson formed the first team in a format where ladies’ and men’s doubles and mixed matches are played against each opposition, with eight teams entered in the competition.
The first team did manage to hold it together to beat Grantham 2nd in a tense ladies’ battle, won by Susie and Jaz, however further success eluded them.
Playing off -7, Grantham 2nd comprised Sophie Turley, Nick Gill, Kerry Durham and Joe Attewell. They enjoyed a much better day overall and managed to finish as competition runners-up, after making consistent progress.
