Current news from Western Badmington Club
The Western Badmington Club was founded way back in the early 1970s by John and Judy Berrow who lived in Western Road.
The Club has met every Wednesday at Haybridge High School. During those early years of minimal facilities, and cold showers we played in the Gym, but for the last few years we have been able to benefit from the fabulous facility of the new sports hall. We occupy four courts, and other clubs occupy the other two (well, for some of the time anyway).
We are very fortunate to have maintained the timing of club badminton activities from 8:00pm until 10:00pm which means that those members with busy work schedules can feel well clear of their daily toil before engaging in the Club’s activities.
Not all of us want to keep fit by playing badminton; some members enjoy a few games then slope off at 10:00pm to enjoy a “pint” at a local pub before the towels go on. As a club we try to get together a couple of times a year for a social meal, and one of those is the AGM. You never know, I might report on the forthcoming AGM in a future edition of this magazine... I bet you cannot wait!!
