Spectators enjoyed what was a record turnout for the Welsh Senior Satellite Series Tournament held recently at Deeside Leisure Centre.

In the Mixed Doubles the partnership of Tim Cope (Cheshire) and Carla White (Flint) played superb badminton to beat Richard Morrisey (Cheshire) and Alex Goodwin (Cheshire) 21-15, 21- 19. 

White then teamed up with local star Judith Hughes (Flint) in the Ladies Doubles but lost out to the superior attacking play of Helen Stoddart (Glamorgan) and Bethan Higginson (Mold). 

In the Men’s Singles William Kitching (Solihull) was just too strong for Richard Morrisey running out a deserving 21/13, 21/10 winner. 

The Men’s Doubles saw the return of ex Flint player Paul McCracken who teamed up with Neil Cottrill (Conwy) and comfortably defeated Richard Morrisey and Tom France (Cheshire) 21-15, 21-19.
