Lynn A played a couple of close games recently in the 2014/15 Ouse Badminton League.

In a grudge match against Lynn’s B team, the B team were looking to claim points back after a 5-1 loss in their last meeting. A couple of last minute changes to the regular teams mixed things up a bit, however a close fought match took place with a number of the games going to 3 in a good spirited match.

Despite a determined performance from Lynn A, the B team were victorious 4-2.

In their final and deciding match of the 2014/15 league Lynn A then hosted Downham A. After a draw in the match earlier in the year away at Downham, and one loss for each of the teams the top position in the Ouse League was resting on this match.

Long rally’s and close games then took place and despite a valiant effort from Downham A, including a stellar performance from captain Richard Barker, Lynn A won 5-1.

A number of matches are still to take place so the final winners are yet to be confirmed, but winners will be announced soon and league competitors are looking forward to a end of season social dinner to crown the winners.

With regular matches between Lynn, Downham, Watlington and Heacham clubs in Mens, Ladies and Mixed sections the Ouse Valley Badminton League pitches local clubs against each other in a competitive but fun environment.
