Cornwall under 11 badminton team lost to close neighbours Devon 27-9, in the second fixture of the season on 20th January 2013.
As in the previous match against Avon, Cornwall fielded 3 of the required 6 under 11 girls and therefore conceded 12 rubbers automatically. However, Ellie Reed, Katie Phelps and Alice Pritchard from the Cornwall U13 squad kindly played to ensure a full team. The match provided debuts to Molly Pritchard and Ethan Walsh.
With the match won by Devon going into the mixed doubles, recent medal winners, the Charlotte and William Freer and Cara Collins and Harry Dyer combinations were both successful in their matches, comfortably defeating their Devon counterparts.
Whilst Cornwall lost the match, the team has made significant progress since the last game and the team can feel encouraged for the final match against Dorset in March.
Several players could have won the player of the match, but it was awarded to Cara Collins for her hard work and consistent game play in all three events.
