See the new rule affecting them here –
“All teams must pay their league fees promptly and prior to any matches being played, failure to do so will result in a 1 point penalty for all Mixed and Men’s matches and a 2 point penalty for all Ladies matches played until fees have been received by the Treasurer.”
SO PAY UP NOW, please.
It is with sadness that I have to report that Don Prideaux passed away recently. He was 69 and had been suffering, I understand, from cancer for some period of time.
Don returned to Ash Green Badminton after a long and very successful career at Morris Badminton Club.
His enthusiasm and friendship made him the most popular of players both amongst his team mates but also his opponents, he was a true gent in every way.
Sadly, I have only found out the news today, which was unfortunately the date of his funeral.
He will be very sadly missed.
