Senior County Championship 2015/16 Season

For the 2015-16 season, Badminton England have re-organised the Senior County Championships (SCC) to be held on reserved weekends in centralised venues.
The weekends will be reserved in the Badminton England calendar and have no masters, seniors or under 17 gold events, ensuring those players should be available for the SCC.

There is also a change in the format of each match to a total of Eleven Games, Three Men’s Singles, Two Ladies Singles, Two Men’s Doubles, Two Ladies Doubles and Two Mixed Doubles.

Avon BA have increased the number of Team’s entered into the SCC to four, this is the highest number of teams we have entered into the SCC. 

  • The first team will continue to play in the highest league, Premier.
  • The second team will play in Division 2, South West region.
  • The third and fourth teams will play in Division 4, Central region.
    Dates, Venues and the teams in the each region have been released and they are available to read under each team's section on this site

 If you would like to be considered for one of these teams please reserve these dates in your diary; we need to ensure we can put strong teams out on each weekend.
This will require a minimum of 36 players each weekend, 20 Men and 16 Ladies.

Whether you are a small club that has recently formed or a larger more established club there are a range of resources and practical tools that can help you develop and sustain your club.

The workshop is limited to a maximum of two club officials per club and we ask that all clubs wishing to attend the evening to register their attendance via www.wesport.org.uk/clubmattersevening. Clubs are also required to register on the Club Matters Website in order to attend this event. On completion of the event booking you will be directed to the Club Matters website to register.

Avon county teams Development squad based at Wellsway School on Thursday evenings (7-9pm).

The Avon Development Squad is always keen to welcome new players, If you are a player that would like to attend but have not received an invite please contact Will (details below).
will.mellersh@innserveltd.com Tel 07721-443343.
If you used to come to the squad but have not been able to recently, for whatever reason, you are extremely welcome to start coming again any time.
All Squad members must have a paid up Badminton England affiliation for the 2014-15 season. Preferably this will be through a club within Avon, although it is appreciated that some students will be affiliated through their ‘home’ club. Others may be directly affiliated with Badminton England. If this is an issue speak to Will or Rob who can organise affiliation relatively quickly. All players must be affiliated for the general wellbeing of the group as any unaffiliated players will invalidate the insurance cover provided by Badminton England
