End of 2012/13 Season

Hello everyone,

Once again big congratulations for another very successful year at St Mary’s Aces Badminton Club! We played fantastic badminton in the Bury Schools Badminton League and finished runners up. The coaches were very pleased that we managed to play all children in at least one competitive match this season.

We are very proud of our junior teams who played in the Greater Manchester Junior Badminton League. The younger team of Jasmine Kennedy, Adam Brand, Harry Cloney and Joe Hull finished a fantastic third in the top section of their league! Our older team of Peter Saunders, Liam Conheeney and Chris Wright played well in the older section of the league. We are hoping to build on their success next year in a very enjoyable junior competition.

Our senior members had some very close and enjoyable games in the North Manchester Open Badminton League.

St. Mary's Aces Badminton Club Kit We would like to thank Woodlands Childcare Manager Mr Dominic Melia and family, for providing us with a set of badminton tops complete with our new St Mary’s Aces Badminton Club logo, in our new club colours of orange and black.

Next season (from September) we are looking to:

  • Enter 2 teams in the Bury Schools Badminton League to be played in the school’s hall on Tuesdays after school
  • Enter 2 teams in the Greater Manchester Junior Badminton League to be played on Sunday mornings at Belle Vue Sports Centre
  • Participate in a junior league for children wishing to play addition matches against juniors from local coaching clubs (exact details to be arranged)
  • Organise club tournaments (various age categories)
  • Compete in the North Manchester Open Badminton League, for seniors and players of year 11 and above.

Unfortunately due to an imminent rise in court costs we have had to make the decision to raise fees in September. At the 7-8pm session we will be asking junior members to pay £1.50 per session and adults to pay £2.50 per session.

Our sessions are taking a short break over the summer holidays. The junior coaching session for St. Mary's pupils (6-7pm) will restart on Monday 2nd September 2013. Our family coaching session (7-8pm) will restart on Monday 5th August 2013.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all happy holidays and a big thank you for your support this year.
