A and B team off to a good start of the season

22/11/09

It was the first match of the season for both Albury A and Albury B and both teams had a great start against Limpsfield A and B. In the A team, Kate Watkins was not able to play so Charlotte Gubby and Margaret Raftis shared the substitution. So the A team had Dean Dawson, Phil Elwood, Olivia Dotzek, Margaret Raftis and Charlotte Gubby.
 
Althought Albury A won 12-4, a lot of the games were very tight with six of the games reaching 21-18 or more. It was certainly very even and it wasn't until the 5th rubber that our team started pulling away.
 
At the same time in the other court, Albury B won 15-1 and the team played mature no-nonsense badminton. The team consisted of Alex Bruce, Jonathan Deans, Charlotte Gubby and Margaret Raftis.
