There was an exceptional standard of badminton at Colne Junior Badminton Club’s summer tournament.

This year’s summer tournament was again a great success, with players competing to a very high level.

Senior club members were extremely impressed with the skills of the junior club participants.

Because of the high level of entry, the competition was divided between two events, both being a great success.

Many of the young players are playing for Lancashire County Badminton Association, and more players will be playing again for the county this next year.
