Manx in Badminton Finals


The Isle of Man's Badminton players are through to their first ever Island Games Team Final.

Playing Greenland this morning in the semi-finals, the Manx put on a convincing display.

The team event consists of men's and women's singles and doubles competitions and is a best-of-five format.

First up was the Island's number one badminton star Josh Green who won his two games in comfortable fashion.

Cristen Callow followed this up in the women's singles with comprehensive 21-9 and 21-3 wins over Greenland's Sara Jacobsen.

In the men's doubles John Callow and Neil Harding held their nerve to come back from 16-20 down to win their first game 22-20.

Down at halfway mark of the second game they came back strongly to clinch the team's place in the final.

The Isle of Man play the winners of the other semi-final featuring Faroe Islands and Guernsey.

The final is scheduled for 7.30pm but due to over-runs and delays it may be up to an hour and a half late.
