Feathers night – Tuesday 5th July

This Tuesday we will be trialling feather shuttlecocks at the club.

At the AGM there was a proposal to introduce feathers at the club, and as a first stage of this it was agreed these would be trialled and then the membership can vote on their preferred approach for next season.

Feather shuttles are generally a better option in terms of play, but they are more expensive. For a more detailed explanation see this article.

It would be great if we can get as many members as possible to try out and also to vote.

The comittee will be asking the club to choose between:

  1. The club will play with only feather shuttles. New shuttles will be used for matches, good knock-ups or new shuttles (where needed) will be used for club nights. This will raise the club fees by approximately £30 a year for all members.
  1. Only teams 1 and 2 in both leagues will use feather shuttles for matches. Feathers will be made available at club night for team practise. This will raise match fees for the affected teams by approximately £2 per player.
  1. No change – continue using yellow mavis 300 plastic shuttles. Club fees will remain unchanged.
