30th DECEMBER 2012

Cornwall County Badminton Association held their County U21 championships at Polkyth Leisure Centre on Sunday 30th December. There was a record entry of players and a fantastic display of very competitive and hard fought matches across all three disciplines – singles, level doubles & mixed doubles. The event was well supported by many players from the U15 & U17 squads of Cornwall Youth Badminton who showed both great talent and sportsmanship throughout the day.

There were some inspiring performances resulting in new champions emerging – these were from:

Hester Luke ( Mounts Bay BC) who beat Bronwen Wotton(First Edition BC) in the Ladies singles final.

Lee Chapple (Mounts Bay BC) & Jack Dyer (First Edition BC) who lifted the Mens Doubles title from former champions Ross Lashbrook ( Launceston BC) & Sam Spencer ( First Edition BC).

Kellen Moore & Amy Polglaze (First Edition Badminton Club) who as U15 players had a fantastic win in The Ladies Doubles over sisters Bronwen & Bethany Wotton (First Edition Badminton Club)

Ross Lashbrook in his final year as an U21 took an impressive brace of titles by retaining both the mens singles event by overcoming a very worthy runner up in Jake Brazwell (Newquay BC & Cornwall U17’s) and by holding for the 3rd consecutive year the Mixed Doubles title with his long term partner Bronwen Wotton.
