The Derek Meakin Memorial Badminton Tournament will be held on Saturday 2nd February 2019 at Hermitage Leisure Centre, Whitwick, Coalville, LE67 5EU.

This is a non-county doubles event and over the past few years players from our club have done well, winning or finishing runners up in some of the age groups.

We would recommend all club members consider entering this event as it is a great opportunity to take part in a competitive tournament for the first time.

At a club session, we can help find a partner or you members can enter with a school friend, even if they do not belong to a badminton club. Players can also enter without a partner and the organisers will then find you a partner on the day.

The events are based on school years and the entry form should be sent directly back to Carole Spencer by 30th January 2019 (and not to be given to Ray Phipkin).

We will have hard copies of the entry form to hand out at our next club session on 9th January 2019, or you can download the entry form below.

Junior Tournament – Sun 15th April 2018

The LSBA Junior American Tournament takes place on Sunday 15th April 2018 at Babington Academy, Leicester. This is a non-County level doubles event which is a great opportunity for new players to experience such events.

Exclusion of county players really gives a greater opportunity for players from Harborough LC Junior Badminton Club to achieve improved results.

Notes:

  • This tournament is level doubles events (i.e. two boys playing together v two boys playing together or two girls playing together v two girls playing together).
  • The events for this tournament are all based on school years (i.e. not Badminton England age groups based on your birthday from 1st January) so more options to play with your friends.
  • Players do not have to play with members from “Harborough LC Junior Badminton Club” so you can just play with your school friend.
  • Only ONE entry form is required with both players names and should be sent to the organiser by 12th April 2018 and not to Ray Phipkin at the club.
  • Form and £10 entry fees (i.e. £5 per player) should be sent to Mr G. Forryan, 239 Main Street, Stanton under Bardon, LE7 9TQ. Telephone: 01530 245098; Email: gforryan@hotmail.com
  • Cheques should be made payable to “Leicestershire Schools Badminton Association”

Tournament Results – 3rd Feb 2018

Players from Harborough LC Juniors recently took part in tournament events with some success.

In the Whitwick tournament, many players from the club entered the boys & girls doubles U10’s, U14’s & U17’s events. A special mention to Theo Parsons & his friend who were winners of the U10’s Boys Doubles event.

In the South Northants Junior League, the U14’s team of Euan Smith, Toby Baker, Matthew Thompson & Brynn Smith played two matches. Against Mereway B losing 64-126 and against Night Hawks B losing 94-122. A special mention to Euan who won his singles game 21-17. Initially we had 5 players but James MacDonald volunteered to help make up another team which was not part of our club – a great gesture.

The U18’s B team of Ella Bills, Ellis McKeown, Joshua Ireland & Ben Highcock played three matches. Against Night Hawks losing 76-122, against Mereway losing 75-122, a special mention to Ella & Ellis who won their doubles game 21-17. Against Harborough A losing 76-126 but a great effort as this was the most points scored against the A team by all teams taking part.

Harborough U18’s A team won the South Northants Junior League U18’s event, winning against Night Hawks 126-62, Mereway 126-71 and Harborough B 126-76.
