The Newquay Cup mixed doubles tournament

Mixed doubles couples from all over Cornwall played in this year’s Newquay Cup at Treviglas Sports Hub at the weekend with some exciting action across a wide age range.

Newquay Cup participants

Players from Liskeard, St Austell, Newquay, Pool and Camborne took part in some close games, with some games featuring rivals from their own clubs to add to the tension.

Liskeard v Liskeard

The game that decided this year's winners was the final one of the afternoon, between defending champions Pete Bazin of St Austell and his partner Lorna Riggs of Newquay and Truro, against Newquay's Paul Tooley and Jen Pugh. This proved a tense and exciting game, as Pete and Lorna edged a tight first end and then, early in the second, Pete was injured going for a backhand shot, but managed to continue and they held on to once again win the Cup by just 5 points.

Cornwall 1st team v Devon, January 2019

Cornwall’s top badminton players travelled to Bristol at the weekend to play the next set of matches in Badminton England’s South West Division Senior Championships.

1st team looking smart

The team, smartly kitted out in a new strip sponsored by Cornwall Fascias, had a tough first match against a powerful Devon 1st team featuring an ex England international and higher ranked players. Despite two three-enders by a battling James Whetter and Kellen Moore in the men’s and women’s singles, the Cornish team suffered a heavy defeat.
