There was a cracking opening game between Lynn Ladies one and two Helen Arnold/ Jess Alder and their counterparts from Heacham Maria Crompton/Sally Warburton when they met at Lynnsport in their opening match of the Ouse Valley Badminton League.
The games were incredibly competitive. Heacham took the opener 19-21. Lynn then fought back with a 21-17 win. The final, deciding, game was just as close and tense with long rallies and a high level of play from both teams, Heacham finally crossed the line winning 18-21.
This set the tone for a competitive overall game between the two teams but a convincing win (21-8 and 21-11) from three and four players Rachel Ingram / Jeanette Ivey put the home team back on track and as the evening progressed Lynn showed their dominance.
There was an unfortunate injury to Heacham’s Sally Warburton in the final game but all of the others were very close.
However Heacham only won one more game in the remaining nine meaning Lynn eventually ran out convincing 5-1 winners.
