COMPETING in this year's Welsh Badminton Masters Championships, Barry's Chris Short remained undefeated to pick up four titles.

Now in their fifth year, the championships were staged at Sport Wales (Sophia Gardens), Cardiff, and Chris, who plays for Cardiff Nomads, won his fifth successive Over 40s men's and mixed doubles titles. And, this year, Chris was also invited to play in the Over 35s men's and mixed doubles competitions and added both those titles to his impressive haul.

Chris said: "It was great to play in the Over 35s tournaments, but it was challenging giving away up to nine years to some of the younger players.

"With each competition involving at least six matches, I rarely got much of a break from being on court somewhere. Unfortunately, this resulted in me being unable to defend the Over 40s singles title, but bringing home four titles more than made up for it!"

Chris would like to thank his respective playing partners and the tournament organisers for hosting a great event and for drawing the cream of the Welsh Masters talent to the capital.
