Handicap Final

In a final postponed from November due to injury, Ali Asghar and Sameer Qadri faced Haider Ali and Abdul Raheem. This was the ORBL Handicap final and Ali and Sameer played excellent badminton on the night to win 21 – 16 and 21 – 7.

Open tournaments 2019

Sadly we only had a limited number of entries for this years open tournament and consequently only the mens competition was able to be played last night. Even this was depleted after a couple of last minute pull outs due to injury. However the remaining seven pairings enjoyed a good level of competitive but friendly badminton in two round robins. The winners of the two pools were Ali Asghar and Sameer Qadri (pool 1) and Paul Beardmore and Anthony Clarkson (pool 2). In the final Ali and Sameer controlled the game to win 21 – 8 and 21 – 15 and emerged as worthy winners to add to their crown of Handicap mens winners.
