Congratulations to Ron Welsh & Helen Hartley
on winning the 2008 Yehlex Badminton Bonanza. This is the second year running that the couple have won the event held at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham.
The event which aims to provide a fun but competitive atmosphere for players who compete on a social level, and an increased level of competition took place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th August.
Luckily the pair had entered the tournament several months ago, and were still able to compete even though Helen was flying to Australia on Sunday morning!
The pair played in a group of five and after winning the group they advanced to the final to take on a couple from Shropshire where they won 21-12, 21-10.
