Cardiff Men’s 1st’s captain Jeff Reynolds commented “What an fantastic year the club has had, last year was amazing, but this season has surpassed those achievements, I must congratulate the club as a whole on this seasons performances, to be promoted for 2 successive seasons in some cases is a phenomenal achievement, and cements our place as one of the best badminton clubs in the Gwent and Cardiff league. I would welcome any new players to come to our summer 2013 sessions ready for next season. We particularly would welcome any ladies wishing to play, as we would like to re-establish our Gwent ladies and mixed teams

Gwent Mixed Team Cup captain, and club secretary Diane Davies commented “I don’t think in all my time as a PD player that I’ve seen such a successful season, securing the Gwent Mixed Team Cup once more was very hard as we had to play some excellent teams en route, most notably the final vs Abergavenny. Lets hope for more of the same next season. Ladies – we are looking for new players, you are extremely welcome to come along – we won’t bite, I promise.
