Laurago’s are top of Division 5 in the inter-Weston open badminton league.
In an early season inter-Weston open badminton club encounter, Laurago’s came out on top to claim first place in Division 5.
With six league debuts across both teams there were plenty of nerves on show. Experience however proved decisive for Laurago’s, captained by Ian Matchett, to gain a solid victory. They were assisted in this by impressive debuts from Angela Jenner and Kate Healy.
Birnbeck captained by Cheryl Beryl Hughes put up a valiant challenge and took both the second mixed and first ladies to three ends assisted by Chris Sarter and Steph Panda Hill respectively.
Both teams showed signs of some really promising partnerships and look forward to the rest of the season. This is the first ever encounter between teams sponsored by local companies.
Newly-opened Laurago’s owner Ian Laurence described the result as a great victory and was pleased to see the Laurago’s team take maximum points from their first encounter.
The club is currently receiving national recognition for its work to increase participation in the sport.
Practice nights are on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at venues across Weston. Unlike all other clubs there is no membership fee, it is purely pay and play with no obligation or commitment. There is no minimum standard policy and the club welcomes all ages, abilities and weights.
