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.


The last evening in 2014 will be Monday. 15th December, when we shall also have our Christmas Tournament.

We start back on Monday, 5th January 2105 and then play though until Good Friday and Easter Monday, 3rd and 6th April.  We then resume normal service (ha ha) until our last night of the season which will be on Friday, 17th April.  That will also be the evening when we hold the second Hamilton Handicap Tournament.

Hereford – Division 1 –  Ross away to Tenbury

Elin reports that the Ross team of  Jess, David, James and herself went to Tenbury on Tuesday, where they had to play with their favourite shuttles ……. plastics !  Despite this the team all played well, and had a really good 5-1 first win of the season.

Deja vu – or I am predictable – because the first Wyedean A match last season was also against Five Acres A, and was when Andy L damaged his knee which kept him out for the whole of last season.  Happily no accidents this season and Jess reports as follows :

Wyedean A away at Five Acres A

The team of Jess, Elin, Lee and Sam had a good match at Five Acres.  Elin and Jess won the ladies easily, one of the games to 3 ! The men also won quickly in two games.  Elin and Lee walked through their mixed games easily, but Sam and Jess took their time.  The first match went to 3, with a win for Five Acres mainly because Jess and Sam kept lifting the shuttles and couldn’t seem to stop themselves from doing it.  The opposition man was clearly pleased because he liked to play a very power filled game.   The second game also went to 3, but Jess and Sam got their game together and won the final game 21-13.  It was a  5-1 overall win to Ross. Happy days!

Well – it could have gone any way !  At the end of the first 4 games it was Severnside 3 – Ross 1.  At the end of the next 4 games, Ross had made a good comeback, and it was all square, Ross 4,  Severnside 4.  All to play for.

It was exciting to watch, and to the ‘completely unbiased spectators’ a draw seemed likely at one stage.  But no, a real team effort had Ross winning 3 out of the last 4 games.  Final result Ross 7, Severnside 5.  An altogether brilliant opening match for Ross in the first division.  Many congratulations and well played Euan, James, Lee and Steve.

Summer was very successful, so thanks to all who came along.

The main season is about to start …… a bit later than planned because the building work at John Kyrle was not completed on time !  We shall now be starting on Friday 5th September, so see you all then.

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.

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.
