Peter Pugh – funeral details

Peter’s funeral service will take place Friday 1st December at 11.00am at the Avon Room, Rainsbrook Crematorium. This will be followed by a church service at St Andrew’s Parish Church at 12.30pm, and then refreshments at the Arnold House afterwards.

Message from the Chairman

It is with great sadness that I must report the passing of our former Chairman, Peter Pugh, on Friday 3rd November.

Pete was Chairman of Hunters Badminton Club, prior to me taking on the job. With Rosemary by his side, they successfully ran the club for more years than most will recollect.

Pete retired from playing due to ill health a few seasons ago with Rosemary continuing her efforts as Treasurer to the club.

Our thoughts and best wishes go to Rosemary, their son David, and the rest of the family at this very difficult time.

If anyone wishes to send messages to the family please use the contact us page and we will ensure the messages are passed on.

Tom Marsh Tournament 2023

We are holding our club tournament on Thursday 7th December. We are hoping that most members will want to join in.

The tournament entry is covered under the club membership fees. Winners will be awarded a trophy each.

Members to enter as individuals and the organisers will allocate the pairings to make all games competitive and will handicap only if necessary.

Pairs will initially be split into groups for a ‘round robin’ first round (number of groups and size of group will be determined by number of entries). The winners of each group will then play off until we have a winner.

We need names as soon as possible please so we can start to make all the arrangements for a fun night of competition.

Please give your name to Barbara or any of the committee members as soon as possible. A sign-up sheet will be available at Club Night.

You will need to bring some blankets, chairs, drinks, plates, cutlery etc … usual things including some other games if you or your kids do not fancy the rounders….
