Our ladies team travelled up to Market Harborough last week for their match. The games were very close and everyone was playing well.
After all the games had been played the score was a draw, 3-3. Unfortunately, to settle the match, it came down to games, from which we lost 6-7.
It was a super close game and we are determined to shift the balance our way at the return match and get the win.
Well played team!
This week the Men’s A played away at Central where, like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. Their best player was out injured which gave us belief that we had a good chance.
Some unfamiliar faces on their team meant that we had to focus on playing our game. Kyle and Mikee beat the first pair to set the tone then Matt and Rob then Ian and Russell beat their opposite numbers to start 3-0. Kyle and Mikee then beat the second pair 4-12, 11-21 to send a message to the others that we are not a team to be messed with. Matt and Rob then beat their 3rd pair to make it 5 games from nine and the win was sealed. The Central 1st pair then beat Ian and Russell the get one back but that was all the glory they could find as we then went on to win the last three games to seal an 8-1 win.
Man of the match goes to Kyle who has come new to the team and with a new partner has won five out of six games. Onwards and upwards. Tough game coming soon with Pyghtle being joint favourites for promotion.
The return match for our ladies, at home against Kettering, our ladies got the win!
After many closely fought games and brilliant badminton, Mereway were able to win the match 4-2. This is a fantastic result for the team and all of the players showed great determination and effort, especially in matches that were taken to 3 ends.
A great night of brilliant games and a fantastic result!
It was a tough loss for the ladies who travelled away to play Kettering. The final score was 6-0 to a very strong opposition.
Our team put in a lot of effort but the games unfortunately did not go our way. Although the match was difficult, the ladies showed great attitude and were very committed to putting in a good performance.
Well done team – on to the next one!
The reverse fixture of the first match saw a stronger Kettering team playing at home but thankfully we took probably the strongest team we could including two debuts from Kyle and Chris coming up from the Juniors via the B team.
Kettering started strong with an experienced pair winning the first game against Kyle and Mikee, but that was their first competitive encounter and they went on to win their other two. An excellent performance from the experienced pair of Matt and Rob saw them winning all three of their games and with Harry and Chris also winning two of three we ran out 7-2 winners.
The man of the match had to be Chris who played brilliantly with Harry and was buzzing on the car journey home.
The opening match for the Men’s A team this season saw a home match against Kettering. A solid performance from Neil and Mikee playing as first pair picking up wins in all 3 of their games helped the team to a 6-3 victory overall. A good start to the season, Let’s keep this up and carry the momentum into the next.
The reverse fixture of the first match of the season for the doubles team was met with fierce opposition. Despite all of the games being close we found ourselves on the wrong side of each and finished losing 9-0. Unlucky to those who played and hopefully a better result in the next match.
Our men’s B team lost their match this week, 9-0 to Duston. As always the whole team did their best and gave a good performance against a very good team.
The match was a great learning experience, especially for the juniors who have stepped up into the team and we are excited for the return fixture later on in the season.
Our first mixed match of the season having been promoted to Division 1 highlighted the tough but exciting season ahead of us as we lost 9-0 to a very good Kettering side…
The team put in a great effort and gave the opposition some good games on the night. In particular, praise goes to Matt and Anna who played fantastically.
Onwards and upwards we go!
After a hard fought match between our Men’s B and Apollo, the home team Apollo managed to take the win. The final score was 8-1, and our Men’s B worked hard to take a number of the matches to 3 ends, a fantastic improvement from last season.
The whole team put in a great effort with a few of the members making their debut in the team and showing some great commitment and determination throughout.
Keep it up team!
