Club Tournament 2019
And the 2019 winners of the Gudge Cup are… Paula and Adam
Kay Gudgeon presented the Gudge Cup to the winners of this year’s mixed doubles American tournament held at PGS last Friday. Paula and Adam are new members to the club this year so it’s a pleasure to see a new generation of players joining Portsmouth Badminton Club.
The runners up were Shraddha and Pritesh who finished one point behind the winners. Kay presented them with their plate trophies.
Third and fourth places were keenly contested, a spread of five points separating the top four pairs. Everyone retired to the bar where the club provided a free drink and lots of food prepared by Andrew and Tom. Andrew’s “flappies”, a chocolate and orange flapjack, and Tom’s warm sausage rolls were devoured with relish. There was a raffle, with free entry, and everyone went home with a prize, thanks to the generous donations made by club members. Andrew deserves a special mention and thanks for all the hard work he put in to organise the tournament and to run it during the evening. Another successful tournament completed.
