2017/18 Season


Updates since the pre-season meeting on August 31.


GLOUCESTER have withdrawn their mixed 3 from div 4 and their ladies 2 from div 4.


KINGPINS have withdrawn their mens team from div 2 and their mixed team from div 3. Their ladies matches are now being played on Fridays at 8pm. Rearranged fixture dates are being agreed.


CHURCHDOWN have withdrawn their ladies from div 4. Regrettably, that leaves just 4 teams in that division.



PITTVILLE have entered two new teams. A mixed into div 3 to replace the withdrawn Kingpins mixed. That naturally becomes Pittville mixed 2. Their previous mixed 2nd mixed team is renumbered Pittville mixed 3.

And a mens into div 3. That was the one division with only five teams so that brings all the mens divisions to a complement of 6 teams. That team naturally becomes Pittville mens 2. Their previous mens 2nd and 3rd mens team are renumbered Pittville mens 3 and 4 respectively.


NOTE: Fixtures for these two new teams will likely not be played at the usual Pittville home venue. Pittville will be in touch to agree these new match arrangements.  



ST WHITES have lost their Wednesday booking at Five Acres at the last minute. They have secured a Friday evening booking instead. St Whites have/will be in touch to agree new dates. 


I publish an updated match timetable each Sunday with changes notified to me during the previous week.
Keep an eye on it and ensure changes you've agreed to because of the above or for other reasons are correctly recorded.


Re-arranging a match

A reminder that loss of venue is the only valid reason for requesting a new date for a match. Rule 9a.

Lack of a team or the right team isn't and the opposition are entitled under the rules to claim the match. The defaulting team will be deemed to have conceded and be penalised. Rule 9l.


The League is all about playing badminton though and your opposition may agree to hold the fixture in abeyance, agreeing to play the the match at a later date.


Just be mindful that does not constitute any obligation for them to do so. Subsequent bad weather, unexpected loss of their own venue if your playing away, un-sporting bloody mindedness and other factors outside of your control  may result in the match not being played after all. The defaulting team will be penalised the same.


You will be in a less vulnerable situation if you can turn out with whoever you can or perhaps a reduced team and play the fixture. Remember to let your opposition know beforehand if you plan to arrive with a reduced team.
