On the 28th January a team from North Herts took on teams from Watford, East Herts, Welwyn & Hatfield, St Albans and Hertsmere, in this annual event. The team was made up from 7 members of the Baldock Junior Badminton Club (www.bjbc.org.uk) and two that play independently in Letchworth. They went in with a lot to live up to, as the area had won the event the previous year and been runners up the year before that.

They were to play each of the other 5 teams in matches consisting of: boys and girls singles; boys and girls doubles; and mixed doubles. They beat four of the other teams by the score of 5-0 and the other one by 3-2, to be the only unbeaten team and the hence the winners.

They now go on like last year, to represent Hertfordshire in the national event in Milton Keynes in May, where they achieved a fantastic bronze medal last year. Let's hope they can do even better this year.

The winning team is pictured below with their team manager/coach Bob Green:-
