The last day of June saw some 70 players and family gathered at TBC for the annual Presentation Evening. This took a different format from earlier years with the first two and a half hours spent playing some fun badminton, a bit of table tennis and the relatively new sport of pickleball. Parents and other family members were keen to join in, with some notable performers on the TT tables.
After the games and a sizeable buffet provided by the parents, they all gathered together in the small hall for the official business.
The permanent trophies for the Junior Restricteds were presented, the multi, three-times winners being Lucy Dodd at Under 13, Charlotte Graham and Tim Bodani at Under 15 and Ashraf Alam at Under 19.
Junior Half Colours were awarded to Arif Alam and Jack Thorpe and these were followed by the award of Full Colours to Anna Railton, Rachel Bogan, Sarah Bambrick and George Moran. The evening ended with the presentation of the Bob Forster silver salvers for “The Most Promising Girl and Boy” to Sarah Bambrick and George Moran and a special word of thanks to the ever-available and constantly-helpful Karen Davison.
