Lothian win Restricted Inter-Group

A good day of friendly, competitive badminton was enjoyed by the players of six of Scotland’s Groups at the Scottish Junior Inter-Group Restricted Under-18 and Under-15 Team Event, held at the Sir Craig Reedie Centre on Saturday 7th October. 

Lothian came though as the most successful Group in both age categories, with Midland runners-up at Under-18, and West of Scotland at Under-15. 

It was good to see Highland there - perhaps a benefit of not holding the event the darkest part of winter, as is traditional, and maybe this is something we should try to continue.  Also we should probably consider moving the event back to a Sunday, to avoid any clash with National Squads. (Any feedback from Groups would be welcome.)

Many thanks to Marisa Baird and Mark Caldwell, whose friendly efficiency behind the table contributed greatly to the smooth and happy running of the event.

Final placings:
Under-18: 1st - Lothian, 2nd - Midland, 3rd - West of Scotland, 4th - Highland
Under-15: 1st - Lothian, 2nd - West of Scotland, 3rd - Midland, 4th - Glasgow & North Strathclyde, 5th - Highland, 6th - North East
