Mens and Ladies Doubles Tournament

 

Sunday 9th June 2013

Pembrokeshire Badminton Association Held their third adult tournament since reforming in 2012 at The Meads Leisure Centre in Milford Haven on a sunny Sunday 9th June 2013.

 

Only 7 Mens doubles teams and 5 Ladies doubles teams entered which was less than hoped, but not unexpected due to the stunning rare weather Pembrokeshire was enjoying

 

The Mens tournament consisted of two pools with the top two competing for the trophy in a winners pool and the bottom teams competing for the plate (chocolates).

 

In the Winners Final it was familiar names, Ben Richards teaming up with Luke Pierce against the current Champions Judha David and Sarfaraz Malik. It was the reigning champions again who just edged their younger competitors, winning 2- 0.

 

In the Ladies final it was debutant Sujatha Padmanabhan and Jenny Manuel who overcame Kylie Brazier and Rebecca Jones. The Mens plate was won by Zak Morgan and Tomos Shea-Waters, the runners up were Paul Hughes and William Hughes. A big pat on the back must be given to Paul Hughes and Robbie Ablett who volunteered to separate and play with younger partners to make the playing field fairer. The tournament was of a very high standard and a good advert for Badminton in Pembrokeshire.
