Carlton Cup was won by CYB B team on handicap before adjusting the handicap’s Liskeard scored 329 – 326 but after adjusting for the handicap this turned into a 37 point win for CYB B 426 – 389 - full report to follow.

Some exciting badminton was played and it was good to see both competitions being played on the same night, the first time for a long time. Nice to see so many spectators including the President and his wife, Pauline and Mike Avery and their granddaughter who plays for the CYB U11’s.
