Emerging Fight Hard

Inter PC Manchester sees the Emerging team put up a hard Fight.Badminton fight

Manchester 2 July 2017 Inter PC where the West Midlands PC Emerging group have a fight and a half.

The team four of our most dedicated player, Joe B, Matt B, Abdul R and Victoria L. All travel to Manchester some have a longer journey than others with a coach ride leaving home at 4.30am….as I said dedicated.

A quick briefing saw an Emerging group of 6 teams, North Cumbria, Potteries, East Cheshire, Manchester, Merseyside and of course WMPC. So a full on day with some very strong opposition, let the battles commence as the fight is on.

Two games were lost 1-4 but with 22-24, 19-21 as loosing scores, the match defeat does not tell the full story. The of course we won two games with a couple of 22-20s, 21-18s ans several 15’s more close games. The match against Manchester saw the biggest battle with the score at 2 games all it was down to the last end. Nail biting stuff but to no avail, 2-3 to Manchester and the fight was over. All said and done a good days badminton with loads of close calls and great experience.

Along journey home! Well done all.
