A day of badminton took place at Musselburgh Sports Centre on Saturday 14th November in support of Musselburgh Riding of the Marches Year of Sport.
In the morning, over 40 participants enjoyed playing Badminton taster sessions including fun games with the Lothian Disability Badminton Club and East Lothian Badminton Club players and coaches. Sessions were open to all players with or without a disability and their parents and helpers.
The afternoon featured a more competitive atmosphere where teams of mixed ability/ disability participants battled it out in a closely fought and thrilling display of team badminton. Lothian Disability Badminton Club and East Lothian Badminton Club were both exceptional in their support and contributions on the day. The event featured Scottish National Team Players and National Coaches from as far afield as Ayrshire who came along to support the competition. Despite this fierce competition it was Musselburgh duo, Fiona and Neil Cameron’s team ‘Smashers’ who emerged as eventual winners.
