Alice Palmer supremely confident

Swansea women’s badminton squad are hopeful they can claim the Varsity bragging rights over Cardiff for a second year running.

Swansea won last year’s meeting 5-3 and hope to repeat the feat this year.

And they have reason to be proud again this year as they built on their promotion with a third place finish.

Captain Alice Palmer believes the tougher games they have played this season will help prepare the team for Varsity.

“Cardiff are in the division above us meaning they will be very tricky opponents,” she said.

“But I see no reason for us to lose.

“The tough games we have had this year will have prepared the team for facing Cardiff.”

Palmer hopes for a strong turn out of fans for the games.

“We are lucky to have a bus this year which hopefully will be full of supporters” she said.

“We are the first sport on but to have as many fans there as possible would be great.”

The match will consist of eight games, four single matches and four doubles matches.
