Tim Leakey (Chairman/Match Secretary) officiated at a Badminton England Under19 Gold sanctioned tournament recently in Hertfordshire at University of Hertfordshire, De-Haviland Campus.
This centre was just a perfect space for Badminton with 12 courts (sprung floors) in one building that were divided to separate each hall of three courts.
The most exciting game was a mixed match with Harry Goode (Son of Jo Goode MBE – Ex World No 1 Mixed Doubles & Andy Goode who also coached both of them) & Cara Collins who were 12-20 down in the third game and came back to win the match and the mixed final of the Tournament 21-23.
It just shows that one should never give up in a match!
