AGM – Sunday 3rd July 2022

The Harborough Feathers AGM will take place on Tuesday 3rd July at 6pm at 11 Woodgate Close, Market Harborough, LE16 8EX. 

The AGM is a great opportunity to have your say on how the club is run (including subscription fees, team entries, match nights etc) and to get involved. We would therefore 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.

Having said that, we are always looking for people to get involved and offer to help on the committee. All committee positions will be up for election at the AGM, including:

  • Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Ladies Captain
  • Mens Captain
  • Doubles Captain
  • Welfare Officer(s)
  • Social Secretary
  • Fixtures Secretary

Most of the committee roles are not too time consuming and you are welcome to ask myself or one of the existing committee members what the roles involve. Note also that 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 24th June. Likewise, if you are unable to attend and would like something raised, then please let me know.

We hope to see as many of you as possible at the AGM and hopefully on the badminton court again later in the summer.

Club Nights during Feb/March

Firstly, a reminder that there is no club night this Friday (18th Feb) due to us not being able to book Welland Park during half term.

In addition, we have been informed at short notice by Welland Park that unfortunately we can no longer use their hall for the following four weeks, due to them using it for mock exams. Thankfully, we have been able to book the hall at Meadowdale for these dates (see below):

  • Friday 25th Feb at 7.45pm
  • Friday 4th March at 7.45pm
  • Friday 11th March at 7.45pm
  • Friday 18th March at 7.45pm

See here for full details of all club nights and note the slightly later start time of 7.45pm.

We will be back at Welland Park on 25th March, but there will be other dates before the end of the season where we will be at Meadowdale, so please keep an eye on the website. We will also send out reminders via email.

Christmas Social – Sat 11th Dec

We have tried to find a date that is suitable for most people and is not too close to Christmas. This date is Saturday 11th of December. The plan is to do a tour of the fine pubs of Market Harborough on foot. We hope to see as many of you as possible.
