Message From Mark Pallett:
Now the 2013 /14 badminton season has started, It’s the time of year again for the Handicap Tournaments to start.
Please find attached the entry form for the upcoming Mixed Handicap Tournament to be held
@ Clayton Green Sports Centre ON Sunday 10th Nov 2013
(starting approx. 9.30/10am till 5pm, approx. times depending entries etc.)
If you haven’t entered before, come down & have a go, everyone always enjoys the day.
Entries will be taken via e-mail, phone or post, but no entry will be fully accepted until entry fee has been paid in full (fees on entry form).
P.S. due to the layout of the leagues (i.e. 5 number) please indicate which tournament you wish to play in (either intermediate or div 1&2 ish),
Otherwise the tournament committee will assess & make a fair a judgement as possible etc.
A clean sweep of wins this week puts all our teams in the top 2 of their divisions. Only the B Team have a match next week, so that should give most of us a rest before the Mixed Tournament on Sunday the 18th. Good luck in that if you have entered.

Club Night 7:20pm onwards @ Home.

B Team vs Garstang @ Garstang 8:00pm D2

Team : Stuart, Hannah B, Richard, Charlotte S, Graham, Lily.
Result: Lost by 38 points 149 – 187.
Stuart stepped in for Harry, and with Hannah managed to get high point scores in 3 of their games, including a win and a spectacular comeback in one. Graham and Lily also had 3 strong games with 2 wins. Richard and Charlotte contributed most points on the night with 6 strong games but it wasn’t enough (despite glucose supplies from Lily and the legendary Whittle tea & bickies) for the hosts to take a victory by 38 points. Well done to Charlotte for lasting until quarter to midnight and overall a great team performance against a seasoned division 5 side and all played in good spirits!
(Note: Next match against Evergreens on Thurs 19th Jan is postponed.)
The Mid Lancs mixed doubles tournament is on Sunday the 20th @ Clayton Sports Centre. Kick off is 9:30am for Divisions 1-3 and 12noon for Divisions 4-6. We have about a dozen couples who have entered which is an excellent turnout, so good luck to all of those. Enjoy the day.
