Sandwell College Badminton Team
Wednesday 18 October saw Sandwell College badminton win their league match against Birmingham Met away at the Sutton Coldfield Campus. Sahal, Jimil, Oli, Rony for the boys and Veronica, Harpreet, Fadelia and Naheeda for the girls.
On arriving a familiar face appeared and knowing that this BMet player had trained at Warwickshire Junior county, Birmingham cell, I thought this would be a tough match. Sahal played well and fought for every point and with the best of three games to 21, got his ‘monies worth’. It went to three and Sandwell College came out on top. Sahal then took to court with Jimil (who had a ‘chicken leg’ knee) in the mens doubles and again, in three, Sandwell boys came out on top. Oli in the singles, with Rony in the mens doubles norrowly lost his/their games 18s and 19s. Could have quite easily gone our way.
The girls did Sandwell College proud and did not drop a game. Thanks go to Naheeda who for the first time on Tuesday came to the badminton session at college and kindly rocked up for the match the day after. ‘Take no prisoners’ Veronica, Harpreet and Fadelia all played well, leaving the BMet girls shell shocked.
Overall Sandwell College walked away with an 8-2 win.
