It has been a difficult start to the season for Alford Badminton Club.
Both teams are now in the top league following the mixed team’s title success in the second division last year, and every game is a real challenge.
However there are recent encouraging signs that early season losses can be improved on.
The mixed team, after losses to Stickney and Skegness, won away against Sleaford.
The men’s team, despite another close loss of 5–4 against Stickney, are still optimistic that they will be able to maintain their status in the top league.
“Paul Lock and Paul Marwood were really back to their top form last week dominating all three Stickney couples and Richard Clark, a very talented newcomer to the team, is improving his match play with every game,” said a club spokesperson.
As always the club is hoping to attract new members whatever their standard.
The club meets on Mondays (7.30pm to 9.30pm) and Thursday (8pm to 10pm).
The club has two Level 2 coaches and runs a junior coaching session (for ages seven to 16) every Thursday from 6.30pm to 8pm.
