Badminton Varsity Shared

After a forty minute delay to the fixed start of 9am, the Badminton fixture got underway at Canterbury Christ Church University Sports Centre.

It was clear to any spectator that both the UKC and CCCU teams came to the court with one ambition today, to dominate. The fixture was set into 16 games with 4 games in Men’s and Ladies Singles and Doubles. Over on the Men’s side of the court, amongst the squeaks of dancing rubber soles and swooshes of moving rackets, were Iven Kong and Kai Foong, two fantastic UKC players who dealt with their CCCU competitors with the powerful assertion of their skills.

Indeed, Foong swiftly annihilated his CCCU opponent so much so that the member of the CCCU team was only able to score 5 points over the course of the two sets. Thanks to these two excellent players UKC won all of the Men’s Singles rounds.

The Men’s doubles teams sparred stubbornly throughout the fixture, with both sides demonstrating their enduring competitiveness.

However, CCCU’s doubles teams remained strong throughout and won and each of the four rounds.

On the other side of the court were the Ladies from CCCU and UKC growing with competitiveness as the sweat began to drip off their brows. CCCU Ladies came out in top form today leading to their impressive 7-1 win in Singles and Doubles matches, leaving the girls of UKC disappointed.

As a result, the points were shared between Kent and Canterbury.
