Badminton: Two out of three for Stowmarket juniors

Sunday saw junior clubs Stowmarket, Abbeygate, Thorpeness and Bosmere in action at Mid Suffolk Sports Centre for the annual Stowmarket badminton tournament. 
It attracted 50 children and saw some competitive badminton played across the whole field.
There were three age ranges, with eight pairs in the under 12s competition, 10 in the under 14s and seven in the under 16s.
The event saw victories for Stowmarket in the under 12s, with Isabel Dunn and Craig Newcombe winning from the Abbeygate team of Antonia de Frettan and Tom Hunt. 
In the under 14s Stowmarket again came out on top with Kerry Knott and Ryan Newcombe beating Alex Dobbyn and Hannah Robertson from Abbeygate in the final.
The under 16s event was another close affair with Rory Beard and Beth Soman from Abbeygate winning from two other Stowmarket pairs, Jack Grey and Jo Knott taking the silver medal, nudging Jess Osbourne and Louis Reynolds into the bronze position.
