24 junior players turned out on a cold December morning to pitch their wits against their peers in the GLL Hatfield Leisure Centre Junior Christmas Cracker Tournament 2019. There were many who were playing this entry level tournament for the first time. Each played 8 games up to 11 points, of half court singles and doubles with random partners. The over all winner was U15 girl Eunice Chan, who did not lose a game. Lucas Hooper won the 12 years and under boys, Ryan Caruana won the 15 years and under boys, and Neha Koubair won the 12 years and under girls. Thanks go to centre manager Karol Butrimas-Gair for providing medals, and to Ku Qureshi and Simon Caruana for all their help on the day ( and throughout the year!).
Merry Xmas and happy 2020.

8 pairs of doubles entered into the parent and child doubles badminton tournament on Saturday evening, 26th October, at GLL Hatfield LC. Each round of games was timed to 5 minutes and pairs had to score as many points as they could in the time. There were some fantastic rallies and although competitive, the games were played in a great spirit.
Ellen and her dad Steve finished 3rd, Farha and her dad Azeem finished second, and the overall winners were Dylan and mum Helen.
Sunday 27th October – Staff vs Customers match The annual staff vs customers match on Sunday 27th October raised £20.86 for McMillan Cancer Support, with the customers proving themselves worthy winners.
