Kilcullen Badminton update

We start this week's proceedings with Kat and the Grade 5 Ladies who travelled to play their counterparts Athy. The Kilcullen girls had beaten Athy in their home fixture 4-0 and were hoping to do the double over their rivals. Kat, Emer,Catherine and Mari didn’t disappoint and managed another 4-0 win over Athy. This win ensures the Kat and the girls are into a semi final and they top the table with healthy 10 points from their opening four matches.

Sarah and the Grade 4 Ladies A also booked themselves a semi final spot when they travelled to Carlow's Ballinabranna. In their last meeting Sarah and her team were a convincing 4-0 win. The only thing different in this match was the venue and the KBC team again won in style beating their opponents 4-0 in a great game. Another great result for Sarah, Caroline, Bernie and Catherine. Good luck to Sarah and the Ragettes in their semi final.

The KBC Grade 5 Mens team captained by Kasi were also on the road on Tuesday night and they visited a improving Portlaoise team. Kasi knew that a victory would put yet another Kilcullen team into a semi final. If Kasi and the lads were under pressure with this knowledge they didn’t let it effect their performance and the lads came away with a fantastic 4-0 victory. Well done to Kasi, Sudeer, Michael and super sub Graham and congratulations to the three teams for making it to the knock out stages.

Murt Dunne was stand in captain for the Grade 2 Mens on Thursday 29 October when they hosted Country Club. Due to other commitments the Grade 2 mens team had to call in three subs and unfortunately Murt and his team were beaten 4-0. The result doesn’t effect the group standings or reflect fairly on the closeness of some of the sets. Well done and hard luck to Murt, Alan Fitz, Michael Cass and Owen Wallace.

Finally some of the girls in the club decided to compete in a 5Km Mud Run for charity the week before last and I managed to find a selfie of the girls just before they went out for a few social drinks, (just after they had completed it!). Well done to Tara, Kat and Lynsey. Sorry, girls, I couldn’t let this photo disappear into the archives without the world seeing it! Lovin' the make-up!
