Medals for Avon Badminton Masters

A record number of 9 local Avon County Masters players were selected to play for England at the European Seniors Badminton Championships held in Podcetrtek, Slovenia last week where the unexpected stars for Avon were Dave Gribble and Gene Joyner. Playing at 55+ Men’s Doubles they came home with the Gold Medal having beaten a German pair in the first round then winning a tough match in the second round against the Scottish No2 seeds. They went on to win, beating Danish 5/8 seeds in Quarter-finals, the Danish No1 seeds in the Semi-finals and Danish No3/4 seeds in the Final, and all without losing a game. A tremendous performance, especially as this was Gene’s first time at European level. Gene also played 55+ Men’s Singles but went out in the second round to a seeded Norwegian. Dave had more success at Men’s Singles 55+ reaching round 4 before being beaten by a seeded Danish player, whom he had played and lost to, at Mixed Doubles in the first round.

We are looking for Bristol Jets Volunteers for the upcoming National Badminton League season!

The Professional NBL has been a huge success across the country since its introduction in 2014 and this season the action is heading to Bristol. The newly formed Bristol Jets include some familiar faces from around the county and matches are sure to be fast paced and exciting! To make the home games a success, a group of volunteers is needed - which is where you come in. Volunteering could involve anything from being a match night helper, a steward, helping prepare the venue, or doing some marketing dressed as a mascot! There will be lots of things to choose from and we promise to look after our volunteers.

There will be 3 home matches across the season: January 9th, January 30th and February 6th.

So, if you would like to get involved and be a part of the Bristol Jets volunteer team then please speak to Ian Gorham, or email Lucy Manley by clicking below:

We look forward to hearing from you, thanks!"

We have now announced the fixtures for the 2016/17 National Badminton League season. The newly formed team have signed numerous players over the last couple of months and are excited and keen to take on competing teams.

Bristol is the only city in the South West (and one of only 9 in the country) to have its own professional badminton team competing in the fast and furious National Badminton League (NBL), so support the Jets and make their first season a "smashing" success!! 
Thanks, Ian Gorham. Chairman Avon Badminton Association & Bristol Jets
