This year’s club’s Double Tournament which started on the 5th January with the Final being contested on the 9th February was particularly hard fought. Congratulations to Pranay for winning – photo below receiving his trophy. A close second was Kam with Prince & Mukesh being the other finalists. Well done to everyone who participated. The next club Tournament will be the Singles Competition on Wednesday 4th May.

After a long break (thanks Covid!) we are going to be organising a series of coaching sessions again with William Lie. The coaching will be on a similar basis as previously, namely for 1 hour for 4 players at a time, starting at either 8:00 pm or 9:00 pm on the following dates:
Wednesday 2nd Feb 2022
Wednesday 23 Feb 2022
Wednesday 2nd March 2022
Wednesday 23 March 2022
This gives players the opportunity to put into practice what William will have taught you before the next coaching session. This method has proved popular and has been appreciated and enjoyed by everyone who has taken part before. The club is subsidising the cost of the coaching. So the cost for the four coaching sessions is £30 per member.
For those in particular who have not had professional coaching before, I would strongly urge you to consider taking up this offer. Not only is William Lie an accredited Badminton England coach but he is also the most popular & friendly coach we have used.
If after committing to the coaching you find that you cannot make a particular date for any reason, we will try our best to put in a substitute so that you would get reimbursed for that session.
So, if you feel professional coaching will benefit your play, then can you please let me know ASAP. Only the first 8 responders will be guaranteed entry into this coaching scheme.
Please feel free to chat to any members who have previously had coaching or speak to me to discuss any queries you may have about the coaching.

On Wednesday 5th January 2022 we will be having a Doubles competition open only to Members.
Everyone who turns up by 8:00 pm on the night will be put into a group of 4 players. As in previous competitions, each player will play 3 consecutive games, pairing up with one of the others against the other 2 in the group in turn. The total number of points at the end of the three games is then added up & whoever has the most points wins that group & progresses to the next round. Depending on the number of groups, in the first round the 2nd placed player may also progress to the next round.
This will continue until we have just 4 players in a final grouping.
There is the club’s Doubles Trophy to be won!
