Solihull & Shirley Badminton Club were in jubilant mood after a fantastic end to the season of the Birmingham & Solihull Leagues.
The Men’s 1st team were crowned division one champions of the Birmingham League after sweeping aside Hot Shots with a 9-0 victory and finishing off with a 7-2 win over last year’s winners Aston Villa.
The Ladies’ 1st team consolidated their second place in the 1st division after a superb 4-2 victory against Hot Shots. Claire Millward, Helen Richmond, Mary Le Druillenec and Helen Fulker were the victors.
A depleted Men’s second team may be disappointed with a 5-4 loss against Frankley but they had already been crowned 3rd division champions and assured of 2nd division badminton next season.
The Mixed 1st team finished second in the 1st division after a 7-2 win against Broadway. The Mixed 3rd team await a challenge from Frankley to see if they can keep their 2nd division status.
Guinness Book of Records’ world record holders S & S wait to see if they can get into the finals of the prestigious Badminton England cup for the third year running with just one round left to play.
