First week already done and dusted. Wins for the C and D teams, a draw for the E Team, and a no show for the A Team because YMCA have dropped out of D1.

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.

St Andrews E v Evergreens C – 12th March 2012

Team: Charlotte, Lily, Hannah B, Richard, Graham, Harry.
Result: Won 16-2
Four days on from playing Garstang and it was our final match! Despite being rescheduled, Evergreens couldn’t muster a full team and declined our offer to find a stand in which was a shame for those who turned out to play. However, this meant we started the match with the 1 extra point needed to secure promotion and could focus on maximizing games. We did this without too much trouble, dropping only a couple of games to get our joint best result of the season (albeit with a 6-0 headstart!). Overall, the “rubies” have had a great season (not without its frustrations!) and have shown great dedication to earn a well deserved promotion, thanks also to our “stand ins”. Fab effort from everyone and a real blast !! Who knows we may still just snatch the trophy if Penwortham get less than 14 games next Monday!!
