On Saturday Saints badminton played their first conference cup match of the season. This is a straight knock out tournament so the stakes were high as we travelled away to face Glasgow 2. Not to mention the men in the team were overjoyed to finally have shirts. With the team in full Saints strip the games began. After some good quality badminton in the singles the match was dead even at 2-2. This theme carried on into the doubles as once again both teams snatched two wins out of the four bringing the score to 4-4. It was all to play for as we walked on court for the mixed, a draw would result in a shootout. Neither team was about to let it come to this. The Saints fought hard but unfortunately Glasgow managed to win three of mixed games giving them a 7-5 victory overall. The match couldn’t have been closer without a draw and there were a lot of close games. Sadly this marks the end of this season conference cup run but we’ll try again next year. Thanks and well done to Hayleigh, Krista, Shona, Yuyan, Danny, David, Edwin and Scott!
