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.

Staffs Restricted Tournament

Hi All

If you fancy the chance to prove just how good you and your partner are the Staffordshire Restricted Tournament is your opportunity to show case your skills at singles, doubles and mixed.


I have been informed that the date of the Restricted tournament for the forthcoming season will be the 29th/30th September 2018.  I do not have any further details about scheduling yet but that usually appears on the county website in due course.  It also has links to online registration forms. The tournament is usually held in Newcastle-under-Lyme but, again, the details will eventually appear on the county website although at the moment it is displaying last year’s details link below.

So. Keep your eye on the County website link as it will be updated soon with entry form details.

 

Proposals for AGM

Its getting to that time of year again where your club has the chance to put forward proposals to be voted on at the AGM. What difference do they make? Now Ladies can play on an even footing and compete in the even doubles league. First division clubs play with feathers. Mixed Teams are now only two pairs.

So if you have anything to put forward then don't miss out send it in to the League and see if it gets voted in by the rest of the clubs.

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

Suggestions for Prizes

It has been suggested that the winners of each division are presented with a prize at the AGM, The Committee have asked for clubs to make suggestions for what the prizes should be. So. If you have any suggestions feel free to pass them on to the Linzi (League Secretary) There is a limit of around £50.
