December/January Badminton

The calendar year is fast closing! Here’s related information about activity at the Centre Hastings Badminton Club:

1) There’s no badminton this Thursday Dec. 13th because of school events.

2) Our last night of badminton is Thursday Dec. 20th. Some of us usually leave the club shortly after 9:00 on the last night and go to a local restaurant for pre-Christmas socializing, snacks and drinks. Everyone is welcome to join us, including juniors, but the drinks juniors order must be non-alcoholic.

3) Badminton resumes on Tuesday Jan. 8, 2019, which begins the club’s 14th year of operation.

See you on court,

7:30 p.m. late start tonight

Tonight's badminton starts at 7:30 p.m.

This is a late notice because the school made a last minute change to our permit  to accommodate a school event that might run 1/2 hour later than originally expected.

Glen Crowley Fundraisers & Update

Just clarifying the situation about Glen Crowley fundraisers: The Oct 29th posting about Glen Crowley has disappeared from the club’s website for unknown reasons.  That hasn’t caused the fundraisers themselves to disappear. Here’s the fundraising information again:

Time's running out for getting tickets to the Waring House event.

The ‘GoFundMe’ internet account for Glen is at It’s for collecting money to deal with his special needs. 97% of every donation will go to Glen.
       Please contribute generously to help Glen.

Note that  Glen’s (& Jennifer Logan’s) Kelly’s Restaurant is now officially closed. His Sports Den business will also be closing, and his badminton racquet stock is being circulated through COBA clubs looking for buyers. The stock has gone to the Belleville Club after which unsold stock goes to clubs further west, starting with the Ridges Club. 

That's all for now,

November badminton & Round Robin Nights

Please note the following information.
1) Just in: We won’t get the gyms until 7:30 pm on Thurs. Nov. 8th.

2) We now plan to have a Round Robin (RR) Night on Nov. 15th as well as on Nov. 22nd. Until attendance is consistently large enough, the club will have RR nights infrequently and only when Belleville Club members are guaranteed to visit us, which is when their permits are cancelled. Nov. 15th and Nov. 22nd are the first such opportunities. Once our club’s nightly attendance becomes large enough we may resume having RR nights twice a month, spaced at least two weeks apart.

Players age 14 and over are eligible to play in the round robins provided they can play till 9:30 if necessary. They must sign up for the RRs by 7:20 p.m. at the latest. There will always be regular play for those not wanting to play in the round robins.

See you on court,

Ye Executive.
