Welcome to the Ross Badminton Club website

We're a friendly club with around 30 regular players competing in the Hereford, Wyedean and Gloucester leagues. Players who just want to play socially are also very welcome. We train on Monday and Friday evenings from 7 - 10pm at John Kyrle High School on the edge of Ross-on-Wye.

Christmas Tournament 2017 – at last !
The 2017 Christmas Tournament finally took place on the 29th January !  Due to the entries, Andy changed the format so that pairs were handicapped rather than individuals.  There were some very long games, and it finally ended up with two pairs on equal points.  There wasn’t much to separate Hayley/Sam, and Patty/Dan, but during the tournament Hayley and Sam beat Patty and Dan, and so they were the winners.
Congratulations to Andy for organising and to all those who took part.

END OF SEASON TOURNAMENT
Thanks to Andy for organising yet another successful tournament – this was the third time we have run  The Hamilton Handicap Tournament in  honour of Andy Hamilton – it is frightening how fast time goes !
Two members forgot to turn up – you know who you are !  If Andy hasn’t sent you the bill for £100,000 (approximately) or a plague of locusts hasn’t descended upon your home, it might well be that pestilence is on its way to you – Simon will be happy because he suffered pestilence all season !
There were two groups – a mens group and a mixed group – the winner of the Mens Group was Sam with 105 points (maximum), and the Runner-up was Mike (100 points).  The mixed group was won by Gina with 126 points (maximum) closely followed by Emma on 125 points.
Congratulations to the winners and to everyone else.  See you all in the summer – details to follow.

GLOUCESTER MENS TEAMS
Congratulations (back to Cliff Richard) to the Mens 1, who have won Division 2 and returned to the first division at their first attempt.    
The fate of the second mens team in Gloucester is still undecided – they have their final match later this week and a good win will secure them second place and promotion in their first season. 
Editor’s Note – as you can see, the Ross second team did come second, so they also look forward to promotion next season – well done to both teams.

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.
