Team Derby Continue Good Form
Team Derby Badminton Men’s 1sts kept up their recent good form with a resounding win against the University of East Anglia.
Derby started well with Ryan Quek quickly putting them ahead with a straight-set victory against East Anglia’s Chris Bennell 21-11, 21-5. Whilst Quek swept aside his opponent, Team Derby’s Thomas Bodman won 2-0 in his tie with East Anglia’s best singles player Tomas Gerrard.
In the doubles Derby’s first pair won both of their fixtures however the second team lost to both the East Anglian sides. The single players managed to win the reverse fixtures and give Derby a deserved 6-2 win.
While the Men’s 1sts were winning their match the 2nds faced Worcester University’s 2nds in the cup and won 5-3. The seconds have been playing very well recently with their victory over Birmingham last week putting them top of their league.
