On 5th November 2017 the Birmingham Badminton Bears Men’s Singles team (aptly named the Kodiaks for their comparatively great strength and intelligence within the Badminton Bear world) played against North Birmingham. The match was played to five games, with four singles matches being followed by a doubles game. The games were gripping, which is more than can be said for the floor of the hall, with both teams suffering in terms of mobility. Things seemed dire when North Birmingham took an early 2-0 lead after some close scorelines. However, some fantastic resilience from our players allowed us to paw our way back to 2-2 – meaning everything came down to the final doubles game. Unfortunately, since Kodiak bears tend towards solitude, our teamwork was not quite up to scratch, meaning after some fantastic play we finally fell at the last hurdle, losing 3-2 overall.
Result: Bears 2 - 3 North Birmingham
Team: Tom, Chris
Next match: Sun 7th Jan vs Activ Sports
