SOLIHULL and Shirley Badminton Club Ladies made a great start to their new campaign, after being promoted to the first division of the Birmingham League last season.
It was a difficult away match against SGN with Zo-dee Ledger and Di Ollivent in great form to leave it a tense 2-2 before the splits. Di and Grace Ollivent, and Zo-dee and Helen Fulker, went on to win both of their rubbers to pick up their first win.
The Mixed first team were also in action this week against Birmingham University in the first division. Despite the 8-1 scoreline against, it was a closely fought contest with five of the nine rubbers going to three games.
