On Friday 16th March Cornwall Youth Badmintons U17 “B” Team competed in the final of the Senior County Carlton Cup Competition. This competition is a handicapped event and a great development opportunity for the young players.The players had worked hard over the season to reach the final defeating both Camelford and St Austell on route to the final against Liskeard.

The team took a 40 point advantage into the match and led by Captain Hester Luke performed to expectations. Some great mens doubles matches meant the team kept on track through the evening, the girls making sure their points tally in their doubles was always ahead of their opponents. The mixed doubles was even but overall the players performances warranted their success.

Final score CYB 426 points Liskeard 389 points.

Cornwall Youth Badminton have been competing in this competition for 3 years, reaching the final last year and now taking the cup on their third attempt.
