Racqueteers Junior club moves to AT7 centre

Posted on 8th September 2013 by Graham Chilvers
Coventry’s only junior club with “Premier Club” status (awarded by Badminton England) is on the move to a new home – as from September 7th, its young players will be coached at the AT7 centre in Bell Green – using all six courts from 10.00am – 1.00pm every Saturday. As the centre is just four miles from its old Ernesford Grange base, the majority of its 70 members are expected to transfer to AT7, although inevitably some will choose not to. There may therefore be spaces available to new members for the coming season. The club runs four separate sessions
(1) Beginners “Badminfun” group (ages 6-11) 10.00 – 11.30
(2) Intermediate players 10.00 – 11.30
(3) Advanced players 11.30 – 1.00
(4) County players 11.00 – 1.00
Any CBA players who want their children to follow in their footsteps should contact the club via the link on the CBA website



Sad News

Posted on 4th September 2013 by Graham Chilvers

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.

Calling all Warwickshire veteran badminton players over the age of 40!

Would you like to represent Warwickshire in the Masters Badminton Leagues? If so, please read on.

For those people who may or may not be aware, Warwickshire will be playing in the following age categories for the forthcoming 2013-2014 season – : over 40, over 45, over 50 and over 60.

We are still looking for players who fit the age criteria and want to play. You will need to be playing for a club side and of a reasonable standard of play. The matches will take place on Sundays from October to March.

There will be two practice sessions before the start of the season which will take place on two Sundays in September and I will notify details by the website nearer the time.

Anyone who wishes to be considered for any of the sides are welcome to attend any of the practice sessions but if you cannot make them then please let me know.
