No badminton on Thursday, round robins resume Oct 12th

No badminton Thursday October 5th as the school is not available.   Belleville Badminton Club will be open and welcomes guests.  $5 guest fee.  Be aware that Belleville is an adult club for those aged 19 and over. 

Thursday October 26th is a late start at 8:00 but we'll stay later until 10:00.

Round robin nights are scheduled for Thursday October 12th and Tuesday October 24th.  While round robins ran smoothly last year they were poorly attended by Madoc regulars.  Round robins make a significant financial contribution to our club and help offset membership fees.  They also raise the profile of our club with the local badminton community.  Many guests that attended in May and June were introduced to the club via the round robins.  As an executive we encourage you to support the round robins to demonstrate that Madoc remains the logical choice to host them going forward.

Players participating in round robins must be at least 14 years old, must sign in by 7:20, and must be prepared to stay until 9:30 if necessary.  Courts will be available for regular play for those not playing in the round robin.

Our general meeting will be held Tuesday October 10th at 8:00 pm.  We'll keep it to 15 minutes or less so that we can get back on the courts.

Full schedule available on the club's calendar.

See you on court,
The Exec.
