Chelmsford 8 - 2 Black Diamond

Pictured : John S
Already this season there've been a couple of real "lows" on here, but at last a great night’s work to report ; I won all three games I was involved with (Team / Doubles / Singles), and pleasingly I got my first 180 of the new season in my Doubles game with Alan P. What am I talking about "pleasingly"? This was a "Yyyeeesss!"

My scoring in all three games probably only averaged in the mid 50’s, but the shots on the critical path were good, and I finished well in my Doubles and Singles game.

My highlights were covering successfully on the 18’s, finishing well, that all important 180 (thanks to landlord Lyndon for the free pint!) , and not making any silly shots. No lowlights for once!

Well Done, Tommo.

It's a great feeling when you win a close match against a team of the same skill level. It's not so good beating a team of mingmongs and even worse getting hammered by a bunch of players much better than you.

Our badminton season starts in the next 2 week and we've just gone up a division, so it's going to be quite hard. Fortunately me and my partner have always been put in as the 3rd pair, so we only need to win 1 game out of 6 to have done our job.
1st pair should win 6, 2nd pair 3 and 3rd pair 1, giving you a 10-8 win. That's the theory. We always try and take 2 games off their 3rd pair and anything else is gravy.

Super on the max Tommo. I sure would love to hit one of those in a league match. Last night we had a bye but the team got together for practice anyway. I hit a couple of ton-35's but no max. I hope you enjoyed that pint.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I've taken the night off and will use tomorrow's Friendly game as practice.
