The club’s best talents took part in the Cambridgeshire Restricted competition – a tournament for the county’s best badminton players.

Ely players teamed up with other county representatives to take a number of prizes over the two-day event.

James Wilson teamed up with ex-member Sara Cunnington to clinch the mixed doubles title, beating fellow club member Neil Place and partner, Hannah Sharman.

There was a Wilson double-header in the men’s doubles final, as Ely’s James combined with Comberton’s Campbell to beat last year’s champions, Neil Place and Abu Kaher of Hurst.
