King’s Lynn group hosts badminton event
Sixteen ladies from the Alive Lynnsport Women’s Wednesday held their annual Christmas table tennis tournament.
Organisers Janis Baker and John Blyth drew the names out of a hat for partners and the ladies played a round-robin competition, with each pair playing one game to 21 points.
The winners were Julie Jones and Daphne Stannard, who won six of their seven games.
However, the runners-up position was a closely-fought contest, with three pairs each winning exactly the same number of points. Jill Biggs and Julie Parslew, Irene Whitehouse and Su’en Miller and Roz Metcalfe and Jane Hindry all finished with 138 points.
Metcalfe and Hindry took fourth pace after winning four of their seven encounters.
But the other two pairs had won five games each, so the points dropped had to be counted up, with Biggs and Parslew taking the runners-up trophies with 93 points scored against them as Whitehouse and Miller had dropped 107 points.
Trophies were presented by Alive Lynnsport’s development manager Victoria King.
