Vikings picked up some valuable points in this match. The night started well for Vikings with a win at second mens followed quickly by a win at second womens where Kristina Buck and her mum  and  super-sub Csilla Buck beat Sarah Goldie and Janet Corkish 21/9 21/10.  Rushen immediately came back to win first mens and first womens, but with both of these ties going to three games, Vikings found themselves 6-4 up after the level doubles. Fourth and then third mixed went the way of Vikings in straight games. Vikings second mixed pairing of Neil and Fiona Brew beat Rob Mason and Janet Corkish 16/21 21/14 21/11.  First mixed went the way of Rushen, where an on-form Neil and Kirree Ronan took a close tie against Alex Townell  and Margaret Daughen 22/20 21/18. Thanks to Alan Ferguson at Selborne for loaning Vikings an extra court to ensure the match was completed in plenty of time.  Vikings are hoping to welcome an injured Lynda Cadamy back into the fold in the New Year.  MF

Mixed League 5


Caley Stores Sulby 10 Tynwald Celts B 10


This match was as close as the score suggests with games and points being evenly matched all through the evening. First mens and first mixed were by far the best games of the night. Sulby first men Norman Brew and Patrick Couper Woods had to pull out all the stops to beat John Dawson and Mark Cheung 22/20 in the third and at first mixed, more superb quality badminton where Brew and Katrina Venancio for Sulby beat Dawson and Kira Clague 21/19 in the third. All extremely close ‘point for point’ scoring throughout.   IC
