Looking forward to the new season at Newport Badminton Club

With the fixtures meeting happening tomorrow, the new 2010-2011 Gwent Badminton Season is not far away.

Here at Newport Badminton Club we are pleased to be entering 2 Mens teams, 1 Ladies team and 1 Mixed team into theGwent Badminton leagues this year.

Our Mixed A team won the 2nd division last year, however after losing a few ladies over the summer break, we are unable to field a Mixed B team even though we have a wealth of men. Hopefully we will find a few more ladies during the year and return with B team next year. The Ladies team unfortunately came bottom of division 1 last year, but not through any lack of effort.

Our Mens A team once again came 2nd in division 2 beating the eventual division winners along the way and hope for better fortune this year. The Mens B team also came 2nd (in division 3) narrowly missing out on promotion due to some defeats early on in the season.

The cup competition was a little disappointing as we lost to Oakdale in the second round.
