Lothian Disability Badminton Club Making History!

Lothian Disability Badminton Club Making History!

Wednesday 21st October 2015 – Meadowbank Sports Centre

Lothian Disability Badminton Club (LDBC) smashed their way through history as they competed at the first Lothian League fixture of the season, creating a memorable night for all involved with the club. This is the first time LDBC have entered into the league, pioneering as the only disability badminton club to ever play in this mainstream competition.

The club players have never experienced a team event in a mainstream environment before now, therefore proving a big night for the boys but ultimately a fantastic showcase for the club and disability sport.

The 1st fixture saw LDBC v R(D)SVSVets, where team LDBC came out on top, winning convincingly 13 games to 5.   The chosen team for this match consisted of Bobby Laing, Colin Leslie, David Purdie, Adam Linton Main, Jamie Munro and Captain Alan Oliver – whose support and encouragement for the team was invaluable.

The league fixture saw our men’s team of 6 being divided into three pairings: Leslie with Purdie, Linton Main with Munroe and Oliver with Laing. Each pairing played 3 doubles matches on the night with two of pairings bringing home maximum points.

Massive congratulations to the team on the night and the club as a whole.  LDBC continue to break new ground across disability badminton & sport in the Lothian region and continue to introduce new dimensions to the club.

LDBC have 4 fixtures to play later on in the year and into 2016 – keep up the hard work guys and I’m sure the club will continue to grow in stature.
