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.
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.
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
