Victory for UoN Badminton makes it 6-1 in Super Wednesday competition

A super Wednesday of Varsity rivalry continued with the badminton event, where the University of Nottingham (UoN) faced off with Nottingham Trent University (NTU) again in Badminton. There were many great performnaces from both sides, but UoN performed far better than their NTU counterparts, and took the win.

It was a fun event, where the commentators and players kept the audience engaged, not only with their impressive performances but also with a cheerful mentality. They even attempted a Mexican wave!
