Now that the weather has broken, it’s time to start thinking about dusting off those badminton rackets and getting ready for the season ahead.
Our first competition of the 2018/2019 Season is the South West September Shuttlefest which will be held in Kilcullen Community Centre on Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th September. It is now in its 4th year running and each year it just gets better and better. As usual, Yonex Ireland will be there on both days to cater for all your badminton needs. Chelsey Cox (Shuttlefest Organiser) will be in contact shortly with further information on this event.
Following the Shuttlefest, we have our Men’s & Ladies Leagues. The closing date for entries for the Men’s & Ladies Leagues is Friday 21st September. Entry forms will be sent to clubs at the beginning of September. As agreed at the AGM, this year we will be having a fixtures meeting for both Men’s and Ladies Leagues and for the Mixed League. The Men’s & Ladies Leagues Fixtures Meeting will be held in Athy RFC on Monday 24th September at 7.30pm. Please ensure your Match Secretary is aware of this date and will be present on the night. Further information on the fixtures meeting will be sent to all clubs along with the entry forms at the beginning of September.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our President, Lesley Cobbe who has worked tirelessly over the past few weeks developing our new website which is very user friendly. All important documents for the coming season can be downloaded from here. You can also subscribe to our Newsletter for regular updates relating to South West Badminton.
