Steven and I played some decent badminton to win the group round then played the semis and unexpectedly met the runners-up from our own group for the finals. James and John had struggled to find their best form and lost out in the semi-finals, leaving us to play the same opponents again.
While we went into the final knowing we had beaten them previously, the final was hampered by some awful serving from myself (6 in the tape, man!) and some scrappy rallies. Still we won through in the end – hurrah!
Many thanks to Steven for partnering me in this tournament – I relied on his smash 😉 – and I was dead chuffed we won.
