Firstly, a reminder that there are no coaching session this weekend (Sunday 5th May) as we don't run sessions on Bank Holiday weekends. We hope that you have a great weekend and we will see those who attend our Sunday coaching sessions (beginner junior, intermediate junior, and adult) at the next sessions on Sunday 12th May.
Secondly, please note that Pates Grammar School have informed us that we are unable to use the sports hall on Wednesday 8th May. This is due to the official opening ceremony for their new sixth form block. As such, there won't be a junior coaching session or senior club night. We will see our junior players at the next session on Wednesday 15th May.
Senior members are welcome to join us in our attempts to win a Pub Quiz, on the 8th. It will be at The Greatfield, from 8pm. Please get in touch with Kat to let her know if you will be coming.

Thanks to everyone who turned up to our Yonex Demo Day. We hope you had fun and managed to find a racket that you love!
Also a thank you to Richard, from BaTsports, for being on hand to provide advice on the rackets 😊
The photo from the adult session is a little misleading - there were quite a few more people there than that. Those were just the ones that were still there 20mins after the event was supposed to finish - they were enjoying trying the rackets so much that they didn't want to leave!

Good news, we will once again be hosting a Yonex Demo Event. This is a great opportunity to try out their entire range of rackets, including those used by all your favourite Yonex sponsored badminton players! Being able to play with all the different rackets will give you an appreciation of the differences (weight, balance, flex, string tension etc) between them so that you can understand the characteristics of your ideal racket.
The event doesn't cost a thing. Just turn up and try out the rackets. Richard Barnett, from BaTsports (a local Yonex Authorised Stockist), will be on hand to provide advice. He's also a ERSA certified stringer, so can help you out if your racket needs a restring. Although there is no obligation to buy anything, he will also be able to take orders for any rackets or other equipment for those who fall instantly in love!
Being able to try rackets out before you buy them is a fantastic, and extremely rare, opportunity that you won't want to miss! So make sure you reserve the date in your calendar and RSVP using the link below.
Date: Sunday 28th April 2019
Time: 2pm - 4pm
Venue: Balcarras Sports Centre, East End Road, Charlton Kings, GL53 8QF
