Hi Everyone, please note that we will be unable to run our junior coaching and senior club night sessions on the following 3 dates. This is because Pates Grammar School need the sports hall for school events. Apologies for the short notice, but they've only just notified us of these cancellations.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our own version of the Olympic Badminton Tournaments. We were really pleased to have over 40 players join us across the 2 days. Congratulations to the winners of each tournament. There were plenty of great games played and so we hope that everyone enjoyed taking part.
I was impressed with how much you had all learnt about the Olympic players that you were representing. I deliberately threw in some tough trivia questions to try and catch some of you out, but was pleasantly surprised when some of you didn't even need to hear the multiple choice answers! A big well done to all those who managed to get all their trivia questions correct, earning themselves the maximum number of bonus tournament points!
Congratulations also go to Connor, Harry, Jess and Flora - the players you were representing won gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics, so you win a prize too! I'll be in touch shortly with details.

There's only a few weeks left now until the Olympics get underway. Whilst they are taking place, we will be running a series of tournaments to replicate what is happening over in Tokyo. Those who participate will represent players in the Tokyo Olympics so that we can see who wins in our version! Not only are prizes up for grabs for those who win our tournaments, but prizes will be awarded if the players that participants represent win a gold medal at the Olympics!
All junior players in Gloucestershire are welcome to join in. However, given the competitive nature of the event we would recommend that players have previous experience of playing badminton at a local junior club or school club.
Both boys and girls singles and doubles tournaments are being run, with 2 age groups for each. Full details of the tournaments, and the entry form, can be found by clicking here.

Earlier this week the UK Government published details of their roadmap to easing restrictions in England. It outlines that in:
This is great news as we've been without badminton for too long! We will be aiming to restart:
The exact date that each step of the roadmap kicks is subject to change, and BADMINTON England have yet to release an update to their guidance, so we will be in touch with everyone once we have more concrete details on when and how sessions will restart. In the meantime, don't forget that you can get your badminton fix by watching the professionals competing in the YONEX Swiss Open and the YONEX All England over the next few weeks!

Hi Everyone, Just a quick update to let you know that unfortunately all our sessions will remain suspended for the time being. Although Cheltenham is moving out of lockdown #2, the restrictions in tier 2 mean that doubles play is not allowed to be played between multiple households.
Fingers crossed the situation will improve and we will be able to get everything back up and running in the new year. In the meantime, we hope you all continue to stay safe and enjoy Christmas as best as you can.
