Highland Senior Championships 2022
A huge turnout of 93 players attended the Highland Senior Championships at the weekend. Due to the huge number of games scheduled an alternative venue had to be sourced for the doubles events. Many thanks to all players and parents for their patience and understanding with the changes. The level doubles events kicked off first on Saturday followed by the mixed doubles at Inverness Royal Academy. The singles took place on the Sunday at the Black Isle Leisure Centre. All disciplines were a straight knockout with a plate event. The quality of the games right from the first round through to the finals was outstanding. A great showcase of badminton!

This event couldn’t have been pulled off without a lot of work behind the scenes and over the weekend. A massive thank you to our venues – Inverness Royal Academy and Black Isle Leisure Centre for accommodating us with last minute changes. Numerous volunteers, both HBG members and parents of players - especially Maressa, Andrew, Lesley, Kerry, Marion, Pauline, Caroline, Iain & Karen - helped get over 180 games on court over the weekend. A huge thank you to you all!
