The Weston Open Badminton Club season got into full swing, with several teams in action.

The badminton season got into full swing last week with numerous matches for Weston Open Badminton Club.

The week started with a home fixture for Abatec Recruitment who took on local side Winscombe B in NSBL Men’s Division 2.

This is the debut season for team of Brian Poole, Slawomir Trybus, Antony Hart and Mark Brodie Taylor and was a tough match against skilled opposition and despite a good effort from Abatec, Winscombe came out on top.

The week continued with a long away trip to Wells City for the Alton Wealth Management side of Daeton Harvey, Ian Boucher, Josh Walker and Sebastian Rabura. After an impressive 3-3 draw in their opening fixture, the side succumbed to the vastly more experienced Wells outfit.

The final fixture of the week was an internal battle between Birnbeck Insurance and Zaks Indian Kitchen in NSBL Division 5 Mixed League.

This was a fiercely-contested battle between clubmates for the chance to move up the table. Birnbeck Insurance were hindered greatly by Chris Sarter rolling his ankle in possibly the performance of the night winning the opening mixed match.

This detracted from the contest as a whole and saw Zaks Indian Kitchen roll out 8-1 winners.

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.
