Plymouth badminton tournament plays again on Sunday after running out of time
A MAJOR city badminton tournament celebrated its new start at the Plymouth Life Centre – but organisers ran out of time to complete their matches.
They will have a go at finishing their matches on Sunday after organiser Brian Legassick admitted timings for the games went awry.
Legassick said the tournament ran into a backlog because players competing in one event were also scheduled to be competing in another.
There had been a question mark over the future of the tournament as its previous home, the Mayflower Centre, was closed to make way for the Life Centre.

Legassick, who has been involved in the event for 28 years, had been concerned over whether the tournament could afford to go to the new centre.
But he said: "The Life Centre has been very good to us.
"There was a question of finances, but that has now been resolved.
"It was a good event and we will be definitely going back to the Life Centre next year. We've learned a lot from this year's event and we'll be changing a few things next year.
"It was a bit of a problem re-arranging a different time for the tournament and contacting all the players, but again the Life Centre came up trumps.
"The good thing is that 95 per cent of the players are available to play again on Sunday."
