WELCOME - THE 2018/2019 SEASON

You can get all the information on badminton clubs in the area and this season's league match fixtures, results, tables and tournaments on this site.

We also have an archive of previous years and publish weekly match reports - read how the teams faired, how the players performed, and whether you got a mention!


Team Captains - Please pay careful attention to the changes to Rule 12. The deadline for sending scoresheets to the Fixture Secretary has been extended, but there is now a penalty for sending them late (agreed at the AGM).

Club Secretaries - All names of ALL match players must be registered with the District Fixture Secretary before they play their first match. Any adult player registered after 31st October must wait 14 days before they are eligible to play in a match. Junior players must still be registered. However, junior players are not required to wait 14 days. Rule 1 has been updated this season to reflect this (agreed at the AGM).

LATEST REPORT

Match Report: 2nd December 2018
Last Week's action.

Ladies Division 1 saw Newbury A take on the league leaders Kennet A. Kennet A started well winning the 1st rubber before Newbury moved up a gear winning the next 4 rubbers to seal the match. Kennet A won the final rubber of the night leaving the score 4 rubbers to 2 in Newbury's favour.

In the same division Kennet B played Shaw B and favoured better than their A team as they triumphed by a convincing 6 rubbers to 0.

Bucklebury A moved to the top of Ladies Division 2 after defeating Kennet C by 5 rubbers to 1.

St Mary's A remain joint top of Mens Division 1 following an 8 rubbers to 1 victory over Shaw B. Hurst A remain close on the leader's tails after a 6 rubbers to 3 win over Kennet A.

In Mens Division 2 Newbury A, who are looking for a quick return to the top division, took on newly promoted Andover. Newbury settled quickly taking the first 3 rubbers and maintained this lead through the remainder of the match winning by 6 rubbers to 3. Kennet B played Bucklebury A and set the tone early on winning two close 3 enders. Having established an early lead Kennet maintained their pace and ran out winners by 6 rubbers to 3.

In the closest match of the week Aldermaston travelled to play Newbury B in Mens Division 3. Newbury won three hard fought 3 enders which may have proved critical on the night as they opened a 4 rubbers to 2 lead. Aldermaston fought back taking the 7 th and 8 th rubbers to level the match. Newbury held their nerve to win the all-important 9 th rubber and the match by 5 rubbers to 4 to retain top position in the division. St Mary's A closed the gap on the Mixed Division 1 leaders, Downlands A, with a convincing 8 rubbers to 1 victory over them.
