Blandford Men and Lytchett Ladies for Dorset in the Champion's Cup 2015 - Banner

National Superleague Champion's Cup 2015

16th August 2015

Sunday 9th August saw Blandford Men and Lytchett Ladies travel to Event City in Manchester to represent Dorset in the Champions Cup.

Blandford Men were drawn in a group with Devon, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. Their first match was against Devon, unfortunately they struggled to find their best form and lost 2-7. The second match saw a determined Blandford side edge out Leicestershire 5-4. The last match of the day saw them face Staffordshire this time being narrowly defeated 4-5. Unfortunately this meant they were unable to progress past the group stages.

Lytchett Ladies found themselves in a tough group with only three teams due to a withdrawal by the other team. They were up against Devon and Lancashire, a side that had the current World Champion Lisa Ashton as one of their players. Their first match was against Devon, they started well but missed doubles saw them lose 1-4. The score was the same in the second game another 1-4 loss, Julie Boggust the only winner for Lytchett in both games.
