Have your say

Grantham Badminton Club ladies’ second team were in action twice this week, firstly losing away with only two pairs to Devon.

Sarah Bransby with Susie Steeples won two rubbers, Sophie Lamb with Jaz Gilbert won one rubber, for a final score of 6-3.

Grantham men thirds endured a gruelling away encounter versus Balderton on Wednesday. Juniors Andrew Watson with Carl Jennings superbly claimed two from three rubbers, all in the third end. Josh Gould with Brian Coyle added a rubber with a 23-21 final game, but unfortunately Daniel Watson with Mike Woodhouse were unable to convert either of their two three-enders in a match which finished 6-3 to Balderton.

At home on Friday, Grantham ladies’ seconds whitewashed Lincoln Albion 9-0. Sonal Modi played with Laura Graves, Jaz Gilbert with Sandra Jennings and Sarah Bransby with Susie Steeples.

Also at home on Friday were the men’s second string team, who beat Devon’s two pairs 6-3. Toby Mills with Jon Ashley won one rubber and went close in another. Joe Attwell with Rob Young won both their rubbers, but Declan Hill with Chris Graves had a bad night, failing to claim any.
