Plenty of very good badminton from two evenly matched sides, with many very close and tough games. St Ninians commented it was their most enjoyable match this season and could easily have gone either way. A brave effort by Selborne in the mixed, after being eight to two down after the level doubles with St Ninians taking both womens in two games. At second mens Roy Wilson and Paul Griffiths lost narrowly 19/21 22/20 19/21 against St Ninians young pair Alex Hewlett and Calvin Smith, and a similar story, only much more St Ninians experience at first mens as Simon Fletcher and Michael Harrison just got the better of Stuart Foley and Alex Lambie 12/21 22/20 21/18. Great mixed play by Selborne as Griffiths and Joyce Hall took fourth mixed 21/18 21/16 against Smith and Isla Crooks, and then Wilson and Susie Stewart continued the Selborne fight-back beating Hewlett and Cara Corlett 21/15 22/20. Both top two mixed were intense and high quality – Lambie and Lisa Lewin lost narrowly to St Ninians Fletcher and Julie Thomas 21/18 20/22 19/21 at second mixed while Selborne's  Foley and Sarah Davidson just pipped Harrison and Sarah Corlett 16/21 22/20 21/17.  RMcM

This match was closer than the score suggests, with many hard-fought games between the more experienced Selborne team and the talented but more youthful Fencibles! Neil McMullen and Paul Griffiths were made to work hard by Ben Swindlehurst and Matthew Gawne for their 21/13, 20/22, 21/18 win at second mens, while at second womens  Angela Guest and Joyce Hall beat Fencibles Chloe Teare and Caiomhe O'Mahonney 21/18 21/14.   At first mens Selborne's Alan Ferguson and Ben Watterson were quickly away winning 21/6 22/20 against Mark Quayle and Chris Bulley before Fencibles' Jodie Green and Rebecca Hands won 21/13 21/12 versus Anita Griffiths and Gill Young. Both fourth and second mixed were comfortable Selborne wins in two gams.  However at third  mixed Selborne's Paul Griffiths and Hall were pushed all the way by Gawne and Teare 21/18 18/21 21/18 and at first mixed  a similar battle of wills, as Ferguson and Anita Griffiths just beat Quayle and Green 21/19 13/21 21/17.  RMcM

The first match having been postponed due to biblical weather conditions (rescheduled for the 25th Feb), this was the first opportunity for Castletown/Abbey B  and  Peel A to see what each other was made of. As play got underway a pattern emerged with the mens doubles going the way of Castletown/Abbey and womens doubles to Peel—an outcome that was endangered briefly at the beginning when at second  womens Sinead Stephens and Claire Townsend of Castletown/Abbey were up in the final stages of their first game against Susan Craine and Chantal McLean only to lose out 19/21 in a nail-biting finish. The close night continued as the mixed game results were fittingly mixed, the momentum even tipping slightly towards Peel eight games to seven as the shuttle was thrown in the air for the last match of the night between the first mixed pairings of Castletown/Abbey's Pete Hadfield and Lisa Watterson  and Stuart Gell and Alison Craine. Thankfully for the home team Hadfield and Watterson kept their composure and snatched the victory away from Peel with two deft and decisive games 21/13 21/12, leaving the final tally in favour of Castletown/Abbey B.

A close match with only ten points separating the teams at the end.  Rushen's Sarah Goldie and Janet Corkish shared games with Fiona Brew and Hayley Brothy 21/11 8/21.  Rushen then won two close games through Kirree Ronan and Lucy Kerr 21/18 21/19 against Margaret Daughen and Sam Spellman. Vikings won in two games when Brew and Spellman beat Goldie and Kerr 21/17 21/12. Ronan and Corkish shared games with Daughen and Brophy.  Vikings winning the first game 21/14 and Rushen the second game 21/17.  Vikings then won two games with Brophy and Spellman beating Corkish and Kerr 21/14 21/20.  Sisters Ronan and Goldie then closed the gap slightly for Rushen with a 21/14 21/16 win over Daughen and Brew but not sufficient to prevent a Vikings win to give them two points to Rushen's one.
