NEWMARKET BADMINTON FEDERATION

                            INTERNATIONAL 25-26th FEBRUARY 2012

Welcome to the 19th international - we hope you all have an enjoyable weekend of badminton and plenty of exercise.

This year we have 25 teams, again split into one B group, one C2 group and three C1 groups.

We hope that there will be time for a play-off between the winners of the three C1 groups but if not then, as last year, the winner will be decided on points for and then against

The venues this year are a little more complicated so please check details for your team carefully:

Saturday venues are Littleport from 9am with King’s School starting at 1pm.

Sunday we will have 3 venues all starting around 9am – Littleport, King’s School and the Paradise Sports Centre in Ely

When and where your first match is on Saturday will be on the order of play with the Sunday details also stated.

The plan is to get as many rounds/matches done on the Saturday (aiming to finish around 7pm) and then carry on from where the groups finished on the Sunday (all done by 4pm).

The hog roast dinner, again as last year, will be at Stuntney Social Club from 8pm until late (if you are up to it)– all are encouraged to come to make it a social weekend - tickets are already being booked so please let me know as soon as you can how many are needed (we have a maximum number).

There will be a raffle this year so please, when you see it coming round, don’t be shy!

You will find all your documents plus a couple of other papers in your team folder which you will get on the day.

A reminder that all groups are feather shuttlecocks which teams will need to provide themselves, although shuttles will be available to purchase on the weekend (at a reasonable price) if needed.

All that remains is to wish you all good luck and here’s to another successful event.

Any questions then please give me a call or email me:
