December is mixed month for Mapperley Park Badminton Club

December brought a mixed month of results for Mapperley Park (probably down to the high number of Christmas parties….)

1st ladies just keep on winning, their latest success a 7-2 victory over Bingham. Jackie Thompson and Lisa Straw taking all 3 in a good all round team performance. It’s been a tough season so far for the 3rd ladies team, a third defeat on the bounce, this time going down 6-3 away at a strong Chilwell side. The three rubbers equally shared. It’s been equally as tough for the 4th ladies, as they suffered a 9-0 whitewash against Crusader.

The 1st mixed finally got their season underway against Byron at Ravenshead, with a hard fought 5-4 victory. In the local derby, an under strength 2nd mixed team got the better of Carlton 6-3, Nat Wright and Matt Haigh taking three rubbers.
Unfortunately the 5th mixed encounter against Beeston Fields had to be conceded due to high unavailability.

And finally in the men’s section, the 3rd team made it three from three with another tight victory, this time 5-4, away at Boots. Harry Brownlee and Fred Thuaud taking three rubbers. The match also saw an encouraging debut in the men’s section for junior Sahrin Ahluwalia.
