Welcome to the Ross Badminton Club website

We're a friendly club with about 40 regular players competing in the Hereford, Wyedean and Gloucester leagues. We train on Monday and Friday evenings from 7 - 10pm at John Kyrle High School on the edge of Ross-on-Wye.

ROSS MENS WIN GLOUCESTER DIVISION 2

For anyone who might not have heard, the Gloucester Mens team played a terrific match against their nearest rivals,  Cleeve,  on Friday which they eventually won 9-3.  This meant that they won the league and will be promoted to Division 1 next season.  Andy would be proud of them – a happy ending to their campaign.

ANDY HAMILTON

You will all know by now the dreadful news that Andy died totally unexpectedly on Monday.  

Andy has been a stalwart member of Ross for years and he will be sorely missed by his many friends at the club, and for his help and advice, always freely and generously given.  

Andy’s funeral will be held on Friday, 7th March at Forest Crematorium, Cinderford, Glos at 12.30 p.m and all Ross members are welcome to attend.  Anthea also told me that as Ross and his cricket club were his two main passions, as a family they have decided that it will be family flowers only and any donations received will be divided equally between Ross Badminton Club and Aston Ingham Cricket Club.  The funeral directors are John Hall, Bulley, Churcham, Glos.

LAST WEEK WAS  DEFINITELY A CELEBRATIONS WEEK FOR ROSS  - TWO BIRTHDAYS AND A WEDDING  - ALMOST SOUNDS LIKE AN IDEA FOR A FILM TITLE !

BELA – FRIDAY

Yet another celebration this week – yesterday was Bela’s birthday – but on pain of death I am not allowed to reveal his age, all I am allowed to say is that he is older than Rhiannon !  Happy Birthday Bela.

RHIANNON – WEDNESDAY

Rhiannon reaches the grand old age of 16, so Happy Birthday Rhiannon from all of us.

DING DONG - WEDDING BELLS ARE CHIMING

James and Elin are getting married this weekend – many, many congratulations to them.  Hope it is a lovely day and the start of a long and happy life together.  We think this is a first – although there have been couples at Ross in  the past, no-one else has met, courted and married !

MATCH REPORTS

WYEDEAN B

Béla reports that it was a very successful first match for the Wyedean B team.  ‘We lost 6:3 to Cinderford but some great performances by all – with a special mention for first-timers Hayley & Jack’.

HEREFORD A

A good week for the Hereford A team – two home matches – first a 5 – 1 win against Tenbury and on Friday a 4 – 2 win against Phoenix A.

HEREFORD B

A ‘mixed’ week for the first two Hereford B team matches – both at home.  First a 4-2 win against Bromyard, and then sadly a 2-4 defeat to Phoenix B.

 

November 10th, 2013

Two away matches in October so far – both wins for Ross.  The ladies won 9 – 3 at Brockworth and the mixed team beat Kingpins 7 – 2.   A good start – don’t forget that if you would like to send match reports, I’ll post them on the website for you.

Congratulations to our Junior players …. again

The County Championships were held at the Hereford Leisure Centre last week (JKHS v Lady Hawkins High School).  Oscar and Jack won the doubles, with Keiron and Nic winning their singles matches.  This means that they will all go on to represent the County in the regional championships to be held in Birmingham in April.  Watch this space for more news !
