On Sunday 8th October, the Rugby & District Badminton Association held the Britannic Assurance Tournament at the Rugby School Sports Centre.
Teams entered from various clubs within Rugby, Lutterworth and Hinckley. In all 64 players (16 teams of 4) were split into 2 groups, group “A” being regular league players and group “B” being some players from the league and many “social” players. The groups played a “Round Robin”, where each team played the other 7 in the group, so a total of 224 games of badminton through the day.
Some teams were mixed with handicaps allocated to individuals at the start of the event and modified during the day, dependent upon the scores achieved in previous games played. The winners of each group were decided by the total number of points gained by each team.
The event drew many spectators throughout the day, a day which started at 10:00am and could have continued past 6:00pm. The results proved that anyone had a chance of winning this event. Click here for the full results.
Congratulations to “Beauty and The Beasts” and to “All Mads Too” for winning their individual sections.
