Evenlode Badminton Club is one of the oldest badminton clubs in Abingdon and was established nearly 60 years ago.
The club plays on a Monday night at St Helen and St Katherine School, Faringdon Road in Abingdon. The Club plays social and league badminton during the months of September to April. We also run a Summer Club from July to August. If you would like to learn more about us, click on one of the menu items above.
Evenlode Badminton Club is a member of the Oxfordshire Badminton League.
I hope everyone has been keeping well during these strange times. September is upon us already so I thought I would update you on a few things:
2019/20 season results We had a very successful year as a club, with 8 of our 15 teams finishing in the top two positions in their leagues! The final league tables are attached. Congratulations to those teams who would have been promoted, and commiserations to the teams who will move down a division next season.
2020/21 season While we had hoped to get back on court in September, the lack of courts for hire and restrictive guidance from Badminton England has meant that this will not be possible. St Helen's have informed us they are closed to external hires until Easter. In the meantime, we are in contact with several venues to see if we can work with them to create a safe playing environment, and we are monitoring the Badminton England and Oxfordshire Badminton League guidance closely. You can find the Badminton England guidance here. We will update you as soon as we can with regards to when and how we might recommence clubnight and/or a mini league.
In the meantime, it would really help us to understand how keen our club members are to start playing again. Please take 2 minutes to complete this survey through the link below by Tuesday 15th September:
2020/21 Evenlode Committee If you would like to join the Evenlode Badminton Club committee then please let me know by Tuesday 15th September.
Evenlode Quiz! While we won't be able to meet on court again for a little while, we can still stay in touch virtually. We thought a nice way of doing this would be a 'start of season' quiz, hosted by our very own Lilian Pallister. The quiz would be held over zoom and we would be allocated into teams on the night, using breakout rooms. If you would be interested in joining in, please let me know by Tuesday 15th September.
That's all from me for now! If anyone has any questions please do let me know and I will do my best to answer them.
Take care everyone and hopefully see you all soon!
Ed and the Evenlode Committee
