Mixed fortunes for Masters teams
Badminton: The Over-40 and Over- 50 teams Nottinghamshire Masters teams travelled to Leicestershire and both matches proved to be tough – and particularly unlucky for the O40s.
Six of the 12 rubbers in the O40s went to three sets – all four ladies rubbers – with Notts winning two of the four.
In the first and fourth mixed, Notts lost out in both cases by 22-20 in the third end.
The team also won two men's, resulting in an 8-4 win to Leicestershire, although the total points were close at 559-541.
