This is a great opportunity for potential new members to try out the club and for existing members to get back into the swing (get it?).
We have four courts so we will have plenty of opportunity to have lots of social play. For anyone new to badminton, we will offer some training to cover the basic’s (rules, grips, footwork, technique) so you will be well prepared for the season ahead.
We had hoped to run a Summer club through July but unfortunately the hall was not available to us. This has had to be delayed until early August. We hope to run a few open sessions on Wednesday evenings 7:45-10:45pm starting 2nd August. This is a great opportunity for potential new members to try out the club!. Check back here at the end of July for more updates on this and the 2023/24 season!
The 2o23 Championships will shortly get underway, all participants need to be available for the finals which will be held on the last night of the club – Thursday May 18th.
There will be no ladies Singles B this year.
Due to the limited number of female entries, there will be only a small number of mixed teams. The Championship committee randomly selected the male players through those that registered an interest in this competition.
During the playoff rounds play will consist of 1 game to 30 points.
Most competitions are based on the knockout format. The mixed teams will follow a round robin format in two groups. The team that scores the highest from each group will go through to the finals.
The playoff sheets will be posted in the club, one or two courts will be used to facilitate the play offs during the club nights remaining in April up until May 18th.
