Tony’s got the winning formula

Friday, June 20, 2014 - 14:32

BADMINTON WITH more than 40 years of coaching under his belt, Tony Isaacs definitely has the winning formula for success.
Tony, 77, started Freshwater Badminton Club 44 years ago, and this year has really been rewarded with his students winning more than 50 trophies at the IW Badminton Tournament.
He was delighted with performances from the "senior county" level players, especially Lucy Baggott, Sophie Baggott, Stuart Isaacs and Emily Boynton, and from the "very promising" category, where future hopefuls Aaron Scott-Roberts, Jack Hobbins, Emily Clow and Sarah Baggott all performed well.
Tony coaches at West Wight Sports Centre three nights a week, and plays himself twice a week too, as he competes in the Over-70s County Masters League.
Tony is hoping to see his top players make the squad for next year’s NatWest Island Games in Jersey.
