2. Women's Singles Badminton

Event: Women's Singles Badminton
Date: 2nd September 2012
Location: University of Essex, Colchester
Cost: £9.50
Rules: Singles matches are decided over the best of three games, with the first player to reach 21 points (by a margin of two clear points) winning each game. Players can only score from their own service. When the score reaches 11 there is a 60 second break. Players change ends after each match or after the 60 second break in the third game.

The Game:

London 2012 Winner: Li Xuerui, China

Score: Game One: Ellie 4, Sarah 21
           Game Two: Ellie 11, Sarah 21
Comments: Sarah: Badminton is one of my favourite sports, so I was glad to see this one roll around early in our challenge. Luckily we were the only ones in the sports centre, as we ran way over our time, with the matches lasting for ages!
Ellie: It's a two sports weekend so we're definitely hitting the list hard. My beginners luck has worn off and Sarah took both games with ease. However, I take comfort in thinking that together we will be a formidable team when we play the doubles matches.
