Wishing you a a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year from all the SSBL Committee.
I’m Leanne, Relationship Manager for Badminton England covering Cheshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.
As the new badminton season gets under way, I wanted to let you know about a funding opportunity to support your Club / League;
Do you want to grow or develop your club to increase participation and membership?
Do you have a target market area? Juniors, adult beginners, social players, females?
Do you know how you would go about it?
If the answer to the above is yes, please apply for up to £500 through our Club Grant Fund For larger projects, please get in touch, and I’ll let you know how Badminton England can support.
Please feel free to take this opportunity to your next committee meeting to throw some ideas around. Think outside the box – these don’t need to be traditional methods.
I’ve taken a snapshot below of some of our grass roots highlights from last season – but we want to do more to support our Clubs and members!!
Please click here for our annual report. It’s well worth a read as it highlights some fantastic successes – hopefully your club will be part of it next year.
Feel free to give me a call or drop me an email if you have any questions or would like to discuss anything in more detail.

A big thank you to Ros Appleton for taking the time to put together the history of T P Norton Badminton Club. To read this click on the following link http://ssbl.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/TPNorton.pdf
If you have the history of your club send it in and I'll put it on the website.
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
How does your club let people know what your like?
Have a look at what one of our clubs have done recently to promote their club. The link is https://youtu.be/u7uqH_VlW90 I wont say which club. Watch it and see if you have guessed right.
If your club has something similar then let us know and we will add it to the page
