A North Somerset ladies’ doubles team reclaimed the Newmarch Cup played at Gordano School.

Last weekend saw the third running of a ladies’ doubles tournament at Gordano School.

Forty ladies across six teams played five matches each over seven hours in a fantastic day of badminton.

The event is in memory of Rob Newmarch, who was passionate about ladies’ badminton and the brainchild of Will Mellersh and was a huge success.

The North Somerset Badminton League team reigned supreme. After winning the inaugural event in 2016, they were keen to reclaim the trophy. The team of seven came out with five wins from five matches to take the title.

Congratulations to the winning team: Nicola Wall, Bron Wooton, Christy Cole, Becci Eagon, Bethan Evans-Brain, Heather Wrigglesworth and Laura Goodland. Captain Mark Edwards.
