July

Another successful ladder to end the season

On the last day of June Dundee Area Badminton Association held their last Adult Ladder event of the season.

There was a fantastic turn out with 64 badminton enthusiasts turning up to play in the doubles ladder held at the DISC in Dundee.

On what was a beautiful sunny day in Dundee and with most clubs having stopped for the summer this just shows the enthusiasm for badminton in the area.

A great deal of credit must go to John Dunn for taking the lead in organising these ladders which have grown from strength to strength over the season.

Competitors came from all over the Midland Group to take part with 11 new players making their debut. Although it is an adult ladder, older juniors are encouraged to enter to gain match experience in a friendly supportive environment. There were 14 junior taking part with one playing in Pool A.

Finally after four hours of badminton, with three rounds completed in all eight pools and with 144 sets being played, the final positions in each pool were agreed.

John and the DABA committee are already planning the dates for next season and along with the successful ladders run by the Dunfermline Badminton Association, NEFBA & Crieff Badminton Clubs friendly competitive badminton in the Midland Group is thriving.
