Last year you will hopefully remember that Kat and Graham organised a charity tournament, which raised £417.51 for the British Heart Foundation. This year they will be running another charity tournament in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. The tournament is set to be bigger, better and raise much more money than last year.

Thanks to everyone who attended our Club Christmas Tournament a couple of weeks ago. Congratulations to Jon F and Julie for winning the tournament. Well done to Tian for winning the trophy for amassing the most "Chairman's Bonus Points" and to Martin for having the closest guess on the 'Spot the Shuttlecock' competition.

Hi Everyone, I hope you've all had a great Christmas. I wanted to get in touch and let you know that we will be running 2 weekly adult badminton coaching sessions in the new year.
Starting on Sunday 7th January, and running through to Easter, they will run one after the other on Sunday mornings at All Saints' Academy, Cheltenham.
The sessions are suitable for beginners, those looking to get back into badminton and those aspiring to local league standard. Each session not only includes a group coaching session but the chance to put what you learn into practice by playing games in the second half of the session.
All Saints' Academy
Session #1: 10am - 11:30am (1.5hrs)
Session #2: 11:30am - 1pm (1.5hrs)
£66 (i.e. £4/hr)
Full details and the registration forms can be found here.
If you have any questions about our sessions then please feel free to get in touch.

Please note that tomorrow (Wednesday 13th December) will be our final Club Night of the year. The first Club Night of 2018 will be on Wednesday 3rd January.
However, there's still time to play a little more badminton before the break, with our Club Christmas Tournament on Sunday at Balcarras Sports Centre from 8pm.
Similar to previous years, everyone brings some nibbles to snack on whilst we play some games - players win points for every rally won. There will be a number of ways to 'top up' your score by completing some challenges set by our Chairman, Paul. You can see some of them listed above (click on the graphic for a larger version). Prizes are on offer for the players with the most points at the end!
In addition to this, Paul is running a 'Spot The Shuttlecock' competition. For 50p, you can guess which square the shuttlecock is missing from in this photo. The winner receives £10! Guesses can be made at club tomorrow night, at the tournament on Sunday or by email to Paul (as long as payment is received before the end of the tournament).
If you are going to be attending the tournament on Sunday then please RSVP ASAP so that we can plan appropriately. Thanks!

I'm one of the first to complain about how the UK shuts down as soon as the first bit of snow hits the ground. However, given the number of road accidents that have already been reported today, I think it's safer for people to follow the guidance from our local police and only travel if it is essential.
As such, we are cancelling all of our sessions today (adult and both junior). Sorry to those who felt they could still travel safely and were looking forward to getting out of the house and playing some badminton.
Hopefully you will have fun being outside building a snowman instead. Speaking of which, I'll award a prize to anyone who sends me a photo of them playing badminton with a snowman! ⛄🎁
See you all next week for the last sessions before Christmas!
