Alnwick and District Badminton League

The league, which was formed in the winter of 1980/81 and has been running for 32 consecutive seasons is looking for additional teams.

In the first few season, six teams were entered, requiring six-a-side mixed teams.

At its peak there were 11 teams from as far away as Belford to Whalton in mid Northumberland.

In the past few seasons there has been five teams who have all been struggling to field four players each.

Could you get a team together of four players who would like a good game in Alnwick on Wednesday evenings at Willowburn Leisure Centre between 7pm and 9.30pm playing with feather shuttlecocks? Contact Jane Tait on 0781181175, Bobby Hopper on 01665 510542/ 07821633426 or Ian McKenzie, 07952716305.
