The opening weekend of the tournament featured two teams

The Isle of Man badminton team recently got off to a strong start to the opening weekend of the Badminton England County Championships.

Two teams representing the island participated in the opening match.

IMC 1 scored an impressive 6-5 win against tough opposition in Cheshire 2 in their first game.

A dominant display against Yorkshire 5s then followed, with the island side securing a 9-2 win.

Meanwhile, IMC 2 faced tough opposition in their first clash against Norfolk 2.

It was the Norfolk side who ran out 3-8 winners, but there were notable performances from the Isle of Man side, including Annelise Mellor and Ryan Curti.

Despite that loss, IMC 2 then bounced back in a strong second leg against Lincolnshire 2, with the Manx side eventually running out 6-5 winners.

On the weekend of January 21-21, 2023, the next round of regional championships will take place.
