The Church Summer Holiday Club will be setting up a stage in the Church Hall on Thursday the 19th of July. That will mean just 2 badminton courts from then until the end of the summer holidays. There will be no Badminton on Monday the 6th of August as the hall be setup for Holiday club during that week.
Only 3 months until the start of the season, so to get you ready, Summer Club is up and running on Monday nights @ 7:30pm. The session rate is £3 for St Andrews members and £4 for visitors.
Bring a drink, badminton is not a summer sport, it gets hot indoors!
We have a few going to the Mid Lancs Presentation at Wellington Park on Friday. Its the usual script, the bar opens at 6:30pm, and everyone should be seated at their table by 7:00pm.
No major news from the League AGM. The League Officers were voted to continue en-mass, and there were no rule changes. There may be some teams dropping out/coming back TBC.
We have moved club nights to Mondays, and next week will be the final Club Night prior to a break for the Bank Holiday, and then a switch to Summer Club mode from June the 4th.
Last fixture of the season is tonight. Our A Team are taking on MGS B in the last cup final of the season. Its a 7:30pm start at Wellfield, entry is free, and Matt might buy you a pint at the Mid Lancs do if you score a few games for him!
Our D Team were unfortunate to loose by just 3 points in last nights cup final against an experienced Brindle team. It was a fantastic effort by all of our players.
