Current League Secretary's Report

Panthers badminton teams have recently returned a run of impressive victories. Their ladies are newcomers to the league and have started their campaign with back to back home wins and take an early lead in division 3. Panthers second mens team won comfortably at Birstall but had to fight hard for a win at Loughborough Tech where Richard Andrews and James Freer took a maximum for the home side. Unbeaten Panthers remain second in division 6a close behind Shepshed.

Elsewhere in the ladies league, Loughborough Leys seconds edged Meltonshire largely thanks to a Megan Sell/Jane Rayner maximum, which stretches their lead at the top of division 2.

In the topflight mens league, South Leicestershire will be disappointed to have out-pointed Loughborough Town, only to have gone down 6-3 in rubbers. Several games set to two points with Town winning the vital ones and having the only unbeaten pair on the night in Tom Armstrong and Ryan King. In division 2 Meltonshire edged out Longslade seconds and followed up with a similar win against Loughborough Students thirds, despite an unbeaten return by Students John Jo Pye and Oliver Pattison. Regal Arts seconds stretched their lead in division 3 after a overcoming a strong South Leicestershire second string, whilst Quorn go top of division 4b. In division 5a Melton close in on leaders Ashby with a vital win against Croakers seconds; Neil Hunt and Steve Heath with an unbeaten display.

In the mixed league, Leys thirds remain unbeaten after victory against the Students second string; Megan Sell and Ross Halliwell returning a straight games maximum on the night. Central seconds achieved their first win of the season against Quorn with Jo Deacon and Edward Hayes taking a maximum three rubbers. In division 5b Croakers seconds go top after edging a weakened Mundella team.
