1st Shetland Tsunami
2nd Shetland Selkies
1st Orkney Dream
3rd Orkney Sizzlers
A great big thank you to Orkney Junior Badminton Committee for hosting last weekend’s feast of badminton.
There were over 70 players from the Western Isles,
Shetland, Caithness and of course Orkney, who all contributed to a very successful weekend.
The high standard of play made for excellent viewing for the many spectators who came to support the youngsters. The many 3 setters, especially at under 18 ,
meant the under 16 & 18 mixed competition had to be completed on the Sunday! So many games went to the wire, continuing
With the first game on Sunday morning, going to 23/21!
If the standard set this weekend continues,
badminton in the Islands and the north can only go from strength to strength. Well done to all the coaches.
Many thanks to the senior Orkney players , all coaches, parents and volunteers for giving up their weekend, helping at the desks, food corner
and generally making themselves available. We would not have managed without you!
Players had a great weekend and are already looking forward to next year’s event.
Thanks to the Pickaquoy Sports Centre for accommodating the tournament and
providing, packed lunches and the evening presentation meal which was, just what was needed, after such a busy day.
