11th July – AGM.

Due to an event at the school on Friday 12th, the sports hall will be unavailable to the club on Thursday 11th July. We will instead be holding the club’s AGM in the classroom at the school, starting at 8pm.

While there will be no games that evening, we hope as many members will attend the AGM as possible. Following the AGM, members are invited to an informal social event at the Black Horse in Bilton (from approx. 9pm).

Club night schedule changes

Starting this week and continuing until 13th June, club nights will be on both Tuesdays and Thursdays each week; however we will only have 2 courts. Both nights will be 7.00pm – 9.30pm. Members are welcome to attend both sessions, but courts might be busier than normal. The schedule change is due to one half of the hall bring set out for school exams. The website has full details of all club dates and times for the rest of the year.

Easter break

We have two courts available this Tuesday (9th April) and club night as usual this Thursday (11th April). We then have a two week break over Easter. Summer season starts Thursday 2nd May.

RDBA Tournament September 29th

After the success of the Britannic again this year, RDBA will be running a late summer tournament on Sunday September 29th. This will be a full day event with a scheduled 14 games per player.
All standards are catered for using a handicapping system. Entries are £12 per person. If you are interested, a sign-up sheet will be provided at club night.

Four courts free this Tuesday

The club has four free courts this Tuesday as the teams having away matches this week. Let’s try and get as many members along on Tuesday so there’s no empty courts! Tuesday courts are available from 7.30pm.

Britannic Tournament Sunday March 17th

This year’s Britannic Tournament will run from 10am to 6pm on Sunday March 17th at the Rugby School Sports Centre in Horton Crescent.

This is a handicapped competetion to encourage players of all abilities to sign-up. The aim is to give each player 21 games of badminton for and entry fee of £10, assuming RDBA can get 56 players in total.

There will be a sign-up list provided at club night. If you would like to play please get signed up (or let a committee member know).

Badminton returns Thursday 10th January

Time to burn off a few turkey-induced calories and get back to badminton … Club nights resume Thursday 10th January 7pm.

We also have spare courts for club use every Tuesday this term except for 26th March. Tuesdays are 7.30pm starts.

One date for the diary, the Britannic Tournament will be Sunday March 17th. More details to follow.
