Sidmouth Badminton Club were crowned winners of two divisions in the Exeter and District League after the 2018-19 season, writes Grace Williams.
The men's team didn't lose a single match all season, an incredible feat considering that they were playing in the top division!
The well-deserved victory came 13 years after Sidmouth last won the Division 1 trophy back in 2006.
After a narrow defeat in their first match, Mixed A didn't look back - going on to convincingly win all of their remaining seven matches and finishing at the top of Division 2A.
Sidmouth will meet on Wednesday, September 4, for the first club night after the summer, and are hoping to repeat the success of last season!
