By finishing second in Pool A yesterday, the Béthunois badistes opened the doors to a final which, if successful on Sunday, would send them to National 1.
By beating Grenoble (5-3) in the opening match, Béthune had done the hardest part as the tension was palpable.
The new defeat of the Grenoblois (8-0) in front of Saint-Maur offered the Artésiens a last match without pressure against the Saint-Mauriens. A lost meeting (8-0) against the scarecrow of the chicken but without prejudice because the essential was already assured with a qualification for the last Sunday square. Crossed meetings which will see the Artésiens challenge the Volant des Dômes (Clermont-Ferrand), first in Pool B, for accession.
Group A classification: VGA Stella Saint-Maur (1st; 12 points); Béthune Badminton Club (2nd; 6 points); Grenoble Alpes Badminton (3rd; 3 points).
