Alive Lynnsport group participate in annual competition
Eighteen women from Alive Lynnsport Monday morning ladies’ badminton group took part in their annual Christmas competition run by coach Janis Baker.
Names were put into a hat and drawn for partners. The women then played eight games against all the other pairings in a round-robin group, playing one game to 15 points.
The outright winners were Maribel Lawrence and Janet Atkins, not losing a single game in the group.
Their closest game was against Linda Watkinson and Trish Knudsen, which they just won by 15-13.
Second place was closer, with Suen Miller and Jane Cornwall only having to beat the two octogenarians who were drawn together, Margaret Toll and Marion Wilson, to take the runners-up trophies.
But Toll and Wilson had their best game of the day, beating them by 15-4. This let in Hazel Greenfield and Kathryn Baker, who in their final game of the day won by 15-13 to take the runners-up trophies.
Tommy Goode, director of business development at Alive Lynnsport, presented the trophies to the winners and runners-up.
The ladies did a collection for West Norfolk Self Advocacy Project (SAP), which is a group run by and for people with learning disabilities, raising £18.
Monday Morning ladies will be back on January 6, at 9.30am.
