Pearl Badminton CLUB

20090531 Badminton England Cup 2008/2009 Round 3

We travelled down to Leigh on Sea for our 3rd round match against Leighway Badminton Club.

As expected they had a very strong team, their ladies being exceptionally strong.

We all tried our best but the hot weather, fast shuttles and unfamiliar venue made it too difficult for us (ok I’m making excuses - they were too good!).

We lost 9:0, 18 games to nil but we did take 2 mens games to 20 all.

It was a good experience for us all, who knows with lots of practice, determination and hard work maybe next year we could win an end!

Still it was a great achievement for us to get to the last 16 in such a prestigious tournament.
