In Penwith College's sports hall at the weekend, the West Cornwall Badminton League held their annual championships and around 40 players representing clubs from all over west Cornwall took part.
The day started with the men's and women's doubles with some close fought matches resulting in the men's winners from the Tecans club in Pool, Chris Glasson and Sam Spencer beating First Edition's (Camborne) brothers, Jack and Elliot Dyer.

In the men's restricted category, two scratch pairings led to Chris Cordell from Truro, and Jake Turpie from Falmouth triumph over the young pair from Cornwall Youth Badminton, Potae Sheppard of First Edition, and Alexander Beaumont from Tecans.

In the combined women's doubles there was high level play throughout, and in the end tournament organiser Amy Cox and her partner Yinling Tan both from the CSM club in Penryn university beat sisters Mollie and Beckie Bailey from First Edition in an exciting match.

After refuelling thanks to The Cornish Oven pasties, sponsored by Glasson's Garage, the players started the combined mixed doubles event. Eventually, after some tight games, the final was between Chris Glasson and Kellen Moore from Tecans against the First Edition pairing of Jack Dyer and Mollie Bailey, and Chris and Kellen just came out top after a see-sawing battle.

The last events of the day were the men's and women's singles - in the men's restricted the young doubles pair were this time against each other, with Potae Sheppard narrowly beating Alexander Beaumont. The open men's event saw Jack Dyer, who had beaten title holder Sam Spencer, finally get revenge over Chris Glasson and take the singles title for the first time. The women's singles was won by first team county player Kellen Moore, who just edged out Mollie Bailey in a nail-biting game.

And so the championships came to a successful end as the weary players dispersed to catch up on Royal weddings and FA cup finals.
