NEWBL was well represented in the Welsh Nationals at the weekend and two of our stars reached the finals on Sunday. First up were No 1 seeds Andy Oates and partner Saffron Morris who played a brilliant, entertaining game against second seeds Kitching and Permatasari winning 21-17, 15-21, 21-13. Dan Font was on top form all weekend, reaching the singles final with ease to eventually beat No 1 seed Archie Bult 21-14, 21-7. In the men’s doubles Dan and his partner William Kitching won the final 21-15, 21-5. Congratulations both.
Honorable mention goes to semi finalists Scott Oates and his partner Aimee (XD), Jamie Noble (Eros) and Luke Tanner (MD) and Ellen Liddle (Eros) and her partner Terrie Dalton who won through to the women’s doubles semi finals, especially as Terrie only had her baby 3 months ago!
