Doing their level best

JEDBURGH BADMINTON CLUB held the annual Ladies and Gents Level Doubles Tournaments last week, with some epic battles taking place throughout the evening.

In the gents’ competition, after winning their respective pool games, Graeme Lang and Paul Bishop came up against Charlie Allison and John Peters in the final.

In a closely-contested match, Lang complemented his more experienced playing partner, resulting in Allison and Peters having a fight on their hands with a consistently high standard of play throughout.

The latter pairing eventually won in three sets 21-12; 17-21; 21-19.

The ladies saw five pairs playing in a single pool. Tracey Kirkpatrick and Myra Younger met Annie Hall and Linsay Evans in the final, again taking the final to three exciting games.

Linsay and Annie won the first game 21-18, with Myra and Tracey coming back to take the next two 21-18; 21- 16.
