Over 50's ICC Weekend Report

The Cambs over 50s attended the BE ICC weekend tournament on 10/11th January at Lilleshall Hall, Telford.

We played 6 matches over the two days, but after some excellent badminton and some very close games came away with 3 x 4-0 and 2 x 3-1 losses and 1x 2-2 draw (for which we are claiming the moral victory by 7 points!! ) Although it sounds like a bit of a whooping 2 of the 4-0 losses had 2 sets which went to 3 ends and so could have gone either way.

The team seem to have acquired a new mascot "Swanney", in the form of a balloon modelled Swan!! He/she came out to play at the dinner on Saturday night and was the subject of much fun !!!!! More so for some of the team........He, with a little help had some of the opposing team threatening to join us having seen the attention he was attracting (I will leave this to your imagination).

I think I am safe in saying a very good time was had by all, with some very good badminton too.
