On the 7th February we ran our second workplace badminton competition. This saw 10 teams from a range of workplaces across the West of England play for the title of champion. Thank you to all the teams for joining us for a brilliant evening of badminton.
We held the competition at Easton leisure centre and split the 10 teams into two small competitions of 5 in relation to ability. This meant everyone had an equal chance of winning and in the end two champions were crowned.
The final result:
Competition 1: (more experienced players)
1st Flaming feather (168 points)
2nd May the fours be with you (142 points)
3rd LBG – Team 1 (124 points)
4th PWC – Team 1 (111 points)
5th HPC – Team 1 (108 points)
Competition 2: (less experienced players)
1st HPC – Team 2 (155 points)
2nd LBG – Team 2 (139 points)
3rd Inside Asia – Team 1 (120 points)
4th Soil Smashers (103 points)
5th Inside Asia – Team 2 (94 points)

Lisa Wood, Project Manager at Wesport and event organiser of the tournament said:
“It is great to be able to offer businesses the opportunity to take part in a high quality but fun competition. Seeing all the teams enjoying themselves is great to see. We also try our best to run a format that means every level of ability has equal chance which keeps the enthusiasm up. ”
