Local stars did well in the National Championships in Manchester.
Olympic hopefuls Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms retained the Mixed Doubles crown when they beat second seeds Anthony Clark (Notts) and Donna Kellogg (Derby) 15-2 15-3 in 37 minutes. Robertson said: "I'm pretty happy with our performance. I was expecting a tougher game so I was surprised at the score."
