Season 10/11 - Week 1 - Overcoming Hawkshaw

posted by Matt Green on Tue 21 Sep 2010 00:02
This past week, the new season of the Bolton Badminton League got underway. Last seasons undefeated Forrest C continued their winning ways with a victory over Hawkshaw D. The team took an 8-2 lead heading into the levels, and picking up 6 of 8 games in the levels, the claimed an impressive 14-4 win.

Also on Wednesday, Forrest A took on Hawkshaw's B team. Having only landed back from my holiday around 7pm, I had to miss the match, but I guess the team did not miss me as they picked up a comfortable 17-1 win with some impressive results in the ladies doubles.

On Thursday, newly promoted Forrest B travelled to Canon Slade to take on Hawkshaw A. With 3 untested partnerships, the team turned up lacking somewhat in confidence. However, Carolyn Wood and Stuart Holden picked up the first two games 21-9, 21-17 against Jenny Roe and Richard Smith, whilst Forrest's 3rd couple Becky Shurvinton and Pete Taylor claimed close victories 23-21, 21-19 over Laura Egan and Chris Smith. At 2nd vs 2nd, Claire Nelson and Chris Mealor split their games 21-18, 20-22 against Roe and Smith, as the team were surprised to take a 7-3 lead into the levels. Stuart and Pete won both their first men's doubles and Carolyn and Becky claimed their 2nd game of ladies doubles 22-20. All round good performances earned Forrest B a great start to the season.

Our D, E, and G teams weren't so fortunate in the opening week, however it is important to remember many of our teams are in a higher division this season.

In the Whitefield League, Forrest A have won 3 games from 3, with victories over Bury B, Bury C and Middleton B.
