The Harborough Feathers AGM will take place on Monday 13th May at 7.30pm at The Angel Hotel, Market Harborough.
The AGM is a great opportunity to have your say on how the club is run (including including subscription fees, team entries, match nights etc). We would absolutely welcome your attendance and input at the AGM, even if you do not wish to take on a more active role with the club.
That being said, we are always looking for people to get involved and offer to help on the commitee. All committee positions will be up for election at the AGM, including:
Men’s 1 Captain
Men’s 2 Captain (if there is to be a Men’s 2 team)
Most of these roles are not too time consuming and you are welcome to ask one of the existing committee members what the roles involve. In particular, we cannot enter teams into the league(s) without team captains.
If you are interested in any of the roles on the committee or would like to add something to the agenda for discussion at the AGM, then please let me know by Friday 3rd May.
We hope to see as many of you as possible at the AGM and on the remaining club nights. The last club night of the season is Friday 24th May.
The Pre-Christmas drinks evening will take place from 7.30pm on Saturday 15th December, starting at The Angel Hotel, Market Harborough and then visiting some of the other local drinking establishments.
We hope to see you there.
Unfortunately, the Men’s 2 team has now been withdrawn from the Northamptonshire league for the 2018-19 season. This decision was due to the lack of a member coming forward to take on the role of team captain.
The Men’s 2 fixtures have therefore been removed from the website and club calendar.
All the 2018-19 fixtures for ladies, mens and doubles are now available on the website.
A full listing of club nights is available here.
Note that on a few occasions during the season, club night may be switched to Meadowdale Primary School due to matches taking place at Welland Park. Members will be notified prior to these dates by email and on the club website.
This seasons club fees are here. There has been a slight increase of £10 in the adult club fees for this season. This is largely due to increased cost of shuttles and court hire.
Can you please ensure that your subscriptions are paid by the end of September, any subs received after that will not receive the £10 discount. If you’re intending to play in matches, prompt payment is appreciated so you can be registered. Please give all cheques/cash to Jim. No one will be registered until their fees are paid.
We intend to have Ladies, Doubles, Men’s 1 and Men’s teams registered in their respective leagues. However, there is currently a vacancy for Men’s 2 captain and unless someone comes forward to take on that role, the committee may decide to withdraw the Men’s 2 team. If you are interested in stepping forward as Men’s 2 captain, please speak to John or one of the other committee members.
Fixtures for 2018-19 are here. Northamptonshire fixtures are already available and Leicestershire fixtures be available in due course.
The Leicestershire Badminton Association is running a pre-season doubles tournament on Sunday 23rd September 2018 at Babington Academy in Leicester.
