League matches 21st - 27th January

Vintage shuttlecocks Again, it's a one-match week. The Mens team will welcome St Leonards A to Sidmouth on Friday 26th. Previously, our Men had a 4 - 5 win, so the form book suggests another win for Sidmouth.


The Mixed B match on Friday 19th January against Honiton produced a score similar to the previous encounter earlier in the season. It was 5 - 4. The problem is the first match was at home and this match was away.

The Ladies team worked hard against Otter Vale A on Wednesday 10th January, but did not prevail, collecting only one point against the visiting team's five.

Well, it was not good news for Sidmouth's last two matches of 2017. They were both at home and played on the same night - 15th December. The Ladies lost 0 - 6 against Ringswell B and the Mens team went down 2 - 7 playing Ringswell A.

Golfing Glory

James Newcombe in Abu DhabiJames Newcombe who plays in our Mens and Mixed teams is also keen on golf. This summer James entered The Abu Dhabi Matchplay Championship, winning six regional matches. In the National Final at the Forest of Arden course, he qualified for a trip to Abu Dhabi. Held on three spectacular championship courses, James just lost out to the eventual winner. This fabulous six-day experience also allowed time to sample the local culture and cuisine, a trip to the formula one Grand Prix Circuit at Yas Marina and a visit to the Ferrari theme park.
