The Monday Morning ladies' badminton group and Women’s Wednesday multi sports group, both based at Alive Lynnsport, held their annual Christmas tournaments.

Having missed last year it was exciting for coach Janis Baker to put on both events.

The badminton event had eight pairs which were drawn out of a hat and the tournament was run as a round-robin where everyone played each other, giving all eight pairs a total of seven games.

Each game was played to 21 points and outright winners without dropping a single game were Joy Barnes and Maribel Lawrence.

Runners-up, winning six games and only losing to Joy and Maribel 21-16 were Dana Gower and Su’en Miller.

The table tennis had the same amount of ladies enter, playing the same format

This competition was a lot closer, as the partnership of Pauline Brockhurst/Mavis Hughes and Jill Biggs/Janet Scott both won six games each.

A countback of points meant Pauline and Mavis had 142 to Jill and Janet’s 137, making Pauline and Mavis the table tennis champions – a fantastic achievement with Mavis the young age of 85.

The two groups had a collection and raised £52 for Lynn Winter Night Shelter
