THE 74th North Devon badminton tournament took place over the Easter holidays at Pilton community college sports hall, where junior players stepped up to take on the best players in the area.

Chulmleigh’s Amy Holland was a double winner, claiming the restricted mixed h’cap with her club mate Ben Hamhill by beating Gina Davies & Stan Colman (South Molton) in two ends. She then teamed up with Leoni Bishop (High Bickington) to take the restricted ladies doubles, also in two ends from Leoni’s club members Jill Fletcher & Karen Parish.

Another junior to hit the heights was Toby Miles, who teamed up with his dad Dave (Morwenstow) to lift the restricted men’s h’cap over junior Sam Clark & Paul Smith (Chulmleigh).

Dave made up for losing the mystery mixed h’cap with Ruth Crumby (High Bickington) to Doug Wilson (West Buckland) and Jan Ashworth (Kenwith) with victory alongside his son.

The level events were shared between clubs, with the mixed won by Steve Buckingham & Jo Brooks (South Molton) who went one better than last year by beating the top seeds Darren Frisby & Mandy Raasch-Sotinwa (High Bickington).

After a close first end, Buckingham & Brooks powered through 21-23, 21-11, 21-15.

Darren had already won the men’s singles and men’s doubles with his club mate Adrian Irwin.

High Bickington won the trophy for the tournament’s top club.
