What’s On Feb 11th

Cup fixtures this week, with the A, D and E teams in action, one team in each cup. There are no home fixtures on Thursday so there are courts available for an extra club night (B vs C anyone?

Boxing Day Anniversary Do/Whats On January 28th

We received a letter from St Catherine’s to thank us for the money we raised at the Boxing Day 75th Anniversary do. The final total was £305, with half collected from the donation boxes and the other half from the profit we made on the night. Thanks again to everyone who came, it was a very good night.

Our smart new club tops have arrived. They arrived in time for some of the B Team and E Team to debut them in their matches on Thursday. Thanks to Rachael for sorting those out for us,

There are a few membership payments overdue, so if you have not paid please get your money in to team captains or Karolyn as soon as possible. Adults £50, Juniors £30.

Due to court availability the date for the Mid Lancs Doubles Tournament has been brought forward to Sunday the 10th of February, so entries need to be in by the end of January. I’m am sure Mark will be reasonable flexible given the change of date, but getting entries in by the end of next week would really help with the handicapping.

A mixed set of results in the cup competitions.

What’s On

It will be the last Club Night of the year on Monday, so if you need a warm up before the Boxing Day Tournament then this is it! I am not sure how much badminton will be played as the pub might be more of a temptation at this time of the year. The first round cup matches will kick off fixtures in the new year week beginning the 7th of January.

Monday 17th of December
Club Night 7:30pm onwards.

Wednesday 26th of December
Boxing Day tournament
12:00 midday onwards

What’s On

We have an additional match rearranged for this week, that means the B Team, C Team and E Team are all in action. As there is no home match on Thursday we can run a club night if there is enough interest, let me know and I’ll sort something out.

The Christmas meal is on at the Eagle and Child tonight (7th of December), the meal is booked for for 7:00pm so get there a bit before so we are all seated by that time. If you are not eating you are welcome to come down and have a few drinks (it is a pub after all!).

I am collecting money for the new club tops, and we can’t process the order until ALL money is collected, so please get it to me as soon as you can.

Thursdays Juniors will be the last one until the new year.
