The Wesport Active Workplaces Badminton Competition took place on Thursday 7th February. This was a fiercely contested competition which saw teams from Inside Asia, Osborne Clarke, Civil Service, Soil Association and Alliance Homes Group compete to become champions.

After 4 rounds of doubles the results were:

  • 1st place – Osborne Clarke 2
  • 2nd place – Soil Association A

This was a fantastic competition and played in a friendly manner enjoyed by all.
