That's all folks! Last Wednesday was the last of our Summer Club Night sessions. This Wednesday's Club Night marks the start of the 2016/17 Season. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who has attended our Summer Club sessions over the last few months.
Those who have been members for a few years may remember that we used to take a break during the summer holidays. However, in 2014, after seeing an increase in membership and with some funding support from BADMINTON England, we were able to support a switch to running Summer Club sessions all the way through summer. We saw an average of 16.7 players attending our summer club that year. Last year, we saw a slightly better turnout, with an average of 17.1 players. However, we have completely smashed that record this summer, with an average of 23.5 players getting on court to play games with us! This is also the first summer where we have had enough players to have all 4 courts in continuous use at every session. So, a massive thank you goes to everyone who popped down for some games this Summer.
