As it’s getting towards the end of the current season, the time is right to find and return any trophies that were presented to you at last year’s Presentation Evening. If you have a trophy or trophies then please return them, cleaned if possible, to any Committee Member as soon as possible.
Any questions then please contact the Honorary Secretary.
The AGM is scheduled for Tuesday 11th June at 7pm, the venue is Barkers Butts RFC as normal. Clubs can send as many representatives as they like but each club is only allowed a maximum of 2 votes on any changes that require voting on.
It would also appear that there may well be vacancies on the Committee this year so please ask / cajole your members to see whether anyone is interested in taking up a position this year. It is vitally important that we get replacement(s) for the Committee to enable the smooth running of the league and to spread the small workload around where possible. If you would like to discuss what’s involved then please contact the Honorary Secretary or Chairman as soon as possible.
It is with great sadness that Knowle Badminton Club announce the sudden death of Steve May on the 2nd February. As well as playing for the mixed and mens Knowle teams, Steve played for the county vets for a number of years and was the club’s match secretary. He will be very sadly missed.
His funeral service is to be held at St George and St Teresa Catholic Church, 337 Station Rd, Dorridge, B93 8EZ on February 22nd at 12noon.
The CET Cup is back again this year and is being held on Sunday April 14th at the Alan Higgs Centre. All Club Secretaries have been sent an email containing the exact details and an entry form (click to download). The event will be played with feather shuttles and is handicapped so everyone has a chance.
Please get your teams organised, 2 Ladies and 2 Men, and get them entered early so that you don’t miss out.
If you have any questions then please contact the event organiser, Seaforth Dale, CBA Secretary, Louise Taylor, or CBA Chairman, Graham Chilvers, for further information.
I look forward to seeing lots of you there on the day.
As we enter the final weeks of the season the committee would like to remind all clubs that they need to make sure that all of their nominated players play sufficient matches before the end of the season.
Should any club be aware of any problems in meeting the league rules they are asked to contact Louise Taylor or the relevant Match Results secretary as soon as possible.
Please take note that the committee WILL take action against teams where nominated players do not play sufficient matches. This action could include a reduction of rubbers or points against the offending teams. If any club is unsure whether any of their nominated players could be affected by this rule then please contact the relevant Match Secretary for details, although it is a club’s responsibility to monitor this.
Please can all Match Secretaries re-arrange any postponed matches (as agreed with the Honarary Secretary subject to rule 9) as a matter of TOP PRIORITY. The new date(s) should be agreed within 7 days according to the rules, so please treat this activity as urgent.
Obviously it becomes increasingly more difficult the later the season goes on, so the sooner new dates are arranged the better.
Any questions please contact Louise Taylor or myself.
