Our first league season has now ended, see how we got on over the 2018/19 season...
It's been a very competitive first season for our club. Having experienced tough fought games throughout the season, our Mens Plastics team finished 6th in the table of Division 5.
Our team went into the season with only a small handful of players having league experience, so this was invaluable to them to get to know the format of play, and understand that there are additional levels of skill when compared to the games they've experienced at the social evenings at our club. The introduction of league badminton at the club has added a new competitive atmosphere, and provided members with something they can aim towards in terms of increasing their skills in badminton.
The first game of the season was a rude awakening for some players as we suffered a heavy 9 - 0 loss to Jaguar, it certainly knocked us down a peg. The team didn't let that phase them however and we then proceeded to have consistently competitive games throughout the season, even through defeat the games were close and we were never out of it.
The support from our members throughout the season has been amazing, and the atmosphere created at our home matches is something to be proud of. So a big thank you to everyone who came down and supported the team over the course of the season!
