Stamford’s Meg Anderson retained her U15 Ladies and Mixed doubles titles at the Lincolnshire County Badminton U15 Championships at Lincoln on Sunday.

Anderson partnered Lincoln’s Molly Price in the ladies doubles final and their match against Rose Bitowt (Grantham) and Kate Garnham (Lincoln) was neck and neck in the early stage.

But as the final progressed, the 2012 champions began to dominate, winning 21-13, 21-11 to take the title.

Anderson then partnered Matt Travis from Scunthorpe in the mixed final.

They beat a Lincoln pair Price and Cameron Wilde but not without a fight. They lost the first game 15-21, and were trailing in the second before recovering to win the second 21-15.

They were trailing again in the decider but pulled back to 20-20 and before Travis fired the winning shot.

Lincolnshire county trials for next year’s teams take place on July 7. For details call Mandy Garnham on 01522 750641.
