The New Badminton Season Begins

The new season is upon us, and all the teams other than the B team are in action in the first week. Shuttle prices have gone up so unfortunately we need to put up match fees by 50p, that means match fees will be £3.50 this season. At present we are holding membership fees at £50 for adults and £30 for juniors, visitor fees on club nights will continue at £3.

I know we have a lot of last seasons players heading off to Universities around the country, so good luck to them in their endeavours. You would never have believed they are such an intelligent bunch Winking smile. We have recruited some new and some not so new players to help fill the gaps, so please make them all welcome if you find yourself playing with them in matches or at club night.
