Truro Badminton Bonanza

Badminton Bonanza, Truro Leisure Centre, 20th October 2012

Over 70 badminton players from all over Cornwall and Plymouth, came to Truro Leisure Centre at the weekend to take part in Cornwall Badminton Association’s Bonanza.

The idea of Badminton Bonanza tournaments is to give both social players and those who play league badminton a chance to try out and develop their skills against different players. The many regulars were joined this time by some very welcome new faces, as the tournament goes from strength to strength, with any profits going towards developing new clubs in Cornwall.

This year’s tournament at the new venue was a great success, with the Griffiths family from Camborne sweeping the board in the social sections. Husband and wife, Mark and Della, won the mixed doubles, then father and son, Mathew joined forces to win the mens, and the final event of the day, saw Mark finally wear down Mathew despite a touch of cramp, to triumph in the singles.

It was a similar scene in the league section, with St Ives’ Tony Wong winning the singles and the mens doubles with partner Trevelyan Searle, but just losing out in the mixed with Catherine Harrison to the Plymouth pair of Ryan Lambourne and Waine Parker.
