HAMILTON HANDICAP TOURNAMENT
Andy produced another great handicapped tournament for the club on the last night of the 2015/2016 season. This was the second Hamilton Handicap – which was named in honour of Andy Hamilton, who died very suddenly just over two years ago. A total of 20 people entered which meant that everyone played 10 games each, which was a total of 100 games played. It was possible to attain a maximum score of 210 points if you won every single game.
The results were :-
Group 1 – Mens
1st Sam 200 points
2nd Dan 199 points
3rd Jack 196 points
4th James S 193 points
5th Kieron 192 points
Group 2 – Ladies and Juniors
1st James C 200 points
2nd Penny 197 points
3rd James F 192 points
4th Oscar 191 points
5th Elizabeth 190 points

A FEW LAST POINTS FOR THIS SEASON –
As you all know, the last night of the season and end of season tournament will be held on Monday 18th April. There is an entry form at club so that you may enter the tournament. If you will not be at club for the next couple of weeks and wish to enter, then let either Andy (email@example.com) or me know. A word of two of warning, when Andy produced the entry form, he added a rider – this is not exact, but I think you will understand what he is trying to say :
“The referee’s decision is final (Andy is the referee!!). Any attempt to bribe the referee without cash or alcohol will result in dismissal from the competition. No alchemy or witchcraft to be used during the competition. If you enter then pull out at the last minute or fail to turn up, a fine of £100,000 (approximately) and a plague of locusts will descend on your home. If locusts are not available, pestilence and/or famine may be substituted”. Clearly Andy was in a better mood than usual when he produced the form !!
Summer badminton will start towards the end of June, and I will let you have the date as soon as this is confirmed.
The Herefordshire AGM is being held in Tenbury on the 14th May starting at 7.15. This will be followed by a Quiz at a cost of £3.00 a team, maximum 4 in a team). If anyone would like to go, then please let me know and I will inform the organisers.

Andy L organised yet another excellent tournament for us just before Christmas – and clearly his handicapping was very good – and although modesty almost forbids me from giving you the results …..
The tournament was in two sections – Mens and then a section of Ladies with some men included to make the sections equal – so a sort of Mixed Section.
The winner of the Mens came down to the last game and was Jack on 186 points, with David a really close second with 185 points.
The winner of the second section was also dependent upon the last game, and yes, it was Penny on 181 points with Andy Knight in second place on 171 points.
Thanks to all who entered – the next one will be at the end of the season in April – dates for the remainder of the season to be confirmed in due course.
