Moray badminton doubles tournament

On Friday 16th and Saturday 17th February, Fochabers at Milnes High School was a hive of badminton activity as it hosted two doubles events.

The 16th was an adult event which attracted 16 doubles teams from all around the Moray area.

To start with there was 4 teams on each court and the night started with 3 men’s doubles courts and 1 ladies doubles court.

Once each team played against each other they were moved to a court that suited their results.

The overall winners were Neil Riach and Gary McKenzie.

The 17th was the family doubles event and again each pair played against the others and then went to a play off.

Jack & Graeme Smith from Moravian Badminton Club were the overall winners and the MVP of the tournament was Argyle MacAulay who represented West End Primary School and his partner was his dad Brian MacAulay.

The events was supported by Moray Council and Active Schools, with some Moray College students volunteering to help.
