As a result of the Government's announcement of 16th March, there will be no Adult section Monday evening badminton until further notice. The same applies to the Junior section which meets on a Wednesday afternoon/evening. It is unlikely that the Junior section will resume before the school summer holidays, given current trends. However please keep an eye on this page for a notice as to when we will resume (both Adult and Junior sections).
Parents of children wishing to join the Junior section from September should contact the Chairman, Gordon White, on 01342 832702.
Members of the Adult section should amend their standing order subscription payment to skip payment for the upcoming quarter (Q2 due on 1st April and Q3 due on 1st July). For ease of your administration, you may want to reduce the standing order to a nominal amount (say 10p) and then increase it once badminton resumes.
Badminton England have defined a four-phase approach for badminton to recommence. Phase 1 (outdoor badminton only) is already in place. On 19th June, following Government announcements, BE stated that Phase 2 (which allows singles play and doubles play by members of the same household) will start from July 4th. We will be interested in Phase 3 (unrestricted doubles play) and await further relaxation of Government restrictions for this to happen.
