Cup Trip Success For Ladies

Glasgow 1sts 2-6 NUBC Ladies

So this week it was time for NUBC ladies to head up north to the freezing cold tartan palace that is Glasgow. The girls were lucky enough to inside the Emirates Arena, which is joined onto the Chris Hoy velodrome (possibly the only male to have thighs bigger than Alvin’s measuring a whopping 27 inches). After various selfies inside the arena it was time for some serious badders – this week was cup match week so the pressure was on!

Firsts Secure Huge Win Over Poly

Northumbria 1sts 2-6 Newcastle 1sts

Any opportunity to poke fun at our friends from Newcastle’s polytechnic college should not usually be missed. However, on this huge match day, two of the members of our men’s first team displayed life-skills malfunctions expected of nursery school children, never mind Poly students. A certain podgy PHD student managed to rock up without his shorts and our Singaporean left-hander forgot his socks. As the Northumbria team came fully clothed, they appeared to think they had outsmarted the superior university and gained an edge. Needless to say, their ability to dress themselves didn’t stop Newcastle picking up a hard fought, but dominant 6-2 victory.

Rival loss for NUBC Ladies

Northumbria 1sts 7-1 NUBC Ladies

So this week it was time for NUBC ladies to take on Northumbria, better known as Scumbria for reasons that we would all take too long to thoroughly enjoy explaining. This week we were playing away at Scumbria Sports Central, which is kitted out pretty well as they can’t justify investing in anything but sport as they all have about 3 GCSE’s.

NUBC Ladies 1s 7-1 Manchester 1s

So Wednesday 5th November it was time for NUBC ladies to take on Manchester University. The match was to be held at the Tyneside Badminton Centre, who really need to sort out their post code as according to taxi companies it’s in the middle of a housing estate, silly blueline. After some inspirational renditions of ‘Let It Go’ in the back of the taxi, the girls were up for the challenge.
