MARCH Badminton Club duo Lorraine Rogers and Ian Hunter have become the latest winners of a cup that was first contested in 1947.

The pair got their hands on the ‘Burn Cup’ at the club’s end of season meal at the Plate and Porter, which was attended by more than 20 members.

The historic cup, which is named after the club’s first chairman, is presented to the winners of their annual tournament.

The club will run a short summer season on Tuesdays, starting on May 8. The sessions will be held in the Neale-Wade Sports Hall from 7-9pm for four weeks.
