Summer Tournament 2016

This was the second year Avon Badminton Association have run this tournament, aimed at providing competitive play for players from the lower divisions of local leagues and social players. Despite not being as well supported as had been hoped it was nevertheless very enjoyable for all who had entered and we hope this will encourage more players to enter next year.

Despite adjustments having to be made to the schedule at the last minute the Men’s Singles was keenly fought with many close games and the final between Callum Nicholls and Jack Witty- Smith was no exception. This match proved to be a tight 3 setter which could have gone either way but Jack took this 21-17, 14-21, 21-15
