Comb 1 v Broomgrove (A) - 19/4/13

Our final game of the season saw us take on Broomgrove, the strongest team in division one.

We had our regular 6 out for our final game together, and were keen to get as many as we could against this strong side.

Combined 1 team - Helen, Karen, Claire, Sam, Rich and Ravi
The opening doubles saw the men go winless and Karen and Helen also came up short. Claire teamed up with Helen to earn us a point and 3-1 from the doubles.
Rich and Karen won both of their mixed, coming from 18-12 down in one to win game 19. This gave us 3-3 but these were to be our only points of the night with Sam and Claire and Ravi and Helen coming up short across the remaining three mixed games.

Ultimately, a very strong side of both men and women comprised the Broomgrove team and they see out the league as champions this year. However, in our debut season in the top tier of Sheffield combined badminton we have finished a mighty third behind Broomgrove and Mosborough. Thanks to everyone who played over the season, it’s been great and we have out done our expectations!

I look forward to next year and trying to improve on third place, let’s go for the title!
