Sad news

Posted on 5th July 2013 by Graham Chilvers

Local badminton is in mourning for popular player and coach, Elaine Slater who sadly passed away at the end of June. Elaine, along with husband Chris, was a player with WBC for many years and, more recently, with Monsoon. Her two sons are members of the Racqueteers junior club where, such was her enthusiasm for badminton she took her Level 2 coaching qualification and became a popular member of the club’s coaching team. She will also be remembered by the young players at Alveston Juniors (where she helped that club set up a new weekly session in Leamington in 2011) and at her after school sessions at Priorsfield primary school and Kings High, Warwick. Always smiling and willing to help players, she will be sadly missed by us all.

The funeral service is at St John Vianney RC church, Bishopton Close CV5 7GW at 11.45am Monday 8th July
