Graham Lewis the sad passing of a badminton legend

Graham Lewis President of Novus Badminton Club and the SSBL passed away peacefully on Thursday 1st November. Graham was involved with badminton for over fifty years and was one of the few that gave their spare time playing and coaching to young and old promoting badminton and Novus Badminton Club. Graham will never be forgotten.

Fixtures Meeting

We have arranged for the SSBL match secretary’s fixtures meeting to be on Tuesday 11thSeptember 2018, 7pm start at the Uxbridge Arms pub, 2 Church St, Chasetown, WS7 3QL.  The meeting will be upstairs in the lounge/restaurant area.
 
Can I also encourage you to buy a drink whilst there since the pub is letting us use the room for free on that condition.  In return, a Tuesday night is also club night for TP Norton BC, who play just around the corner from the pub in the Erasmus Darwin Academy, and The Chair of TP Norton would like to invite any attendees at the meeting to go and have a game with the club after the meeting.  TP’s club night finishes at 9:30pm. You would be very welcome!
 
Please also find attached the SSBL club Directory from last year.  Can you let me know ASAP whether your club’s details are correct or whether changes need to be made.  Please let me know soon or at the latest by 5th September so I can get the list updated for the meeting.

Roll of Honour & Club History

A Roll of Honour of previous winners has been suggested by Three Spires. An interesting idea but somewhat difficult with how far back the league goes and the number of divisions. Well if anyone out there has any information on this subject we would be grateful if you could pass this on to help with trying to collate a list of previous winners.
It would also be interesting for all clubs to put their history together for all to see similar to Graham Lewis has done with Novus Badminton Club. You can check this out at https://novusbadminton.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/novus-60yr-history.pdf
