A Christmas Cracker of a Tournament!

Farsley Celtic Badminton Leeds ended 2016 with their annual Christmas doubles tournament where wine and treats awaited the winners.

Immaculately organised by club Chairman Ian Richardson, the tournament saw most club members take part in an enjoyable format that gave all players the chance to progress and a guaranteed minimum of six games.

Lynda Bedford and Daniel Roach played Stephen Richardson and Ian Anderson in the final, with Lynda and Dan just edging out the all-male partnership 21-17.

A special mention goes out to Jo Dean, our social secretary who won a big box of chocolates for her amazing fancy dress – she literally came as a wrapped Christmas present. I don’t think we saw her playing in it though.

Members enjoyed pizza and a few drinks in the club house next door to unwind before the Christmas break.

Huge thanks to Linda Bedford for ordering all the cheesy goodness – even though there may have been one or two left over. Delicious!

Congratulations to Dan and Lynda but most importantly Jo for her superb fancy dress outfit – more effort needed in 2017 everyone! 😉

Our next Farsley Badminton Leeds Club social is our bowling bonanza on January 21st. See you all there!
