Club’s Year End under New Management

Today’s email contains several important announcements.

Ongoing rehearsals for the school’s play will deprive us of the last 2 scheduled play nights of our regular season, so there will be no badminton on May 14 & 16. Instead, there will be badminton on May 21 & May 23.

 

Some of our players are keen to play beyond the regular season, from May 28 to June 20. Session fees don’t cover the extra nights, so all players will have to pay the normal nightly fees in order to cover gym rent costs.

 

The May 28 to June 20 period will be supervised by Eli Levi and Aren-Kramer Schwartz. Eli first played at the club as a young junior, along with his father Mike and brother Ahodhan. After a lengthy absence, Eli returned to the club last year as an exceptionally talented and caring player.  Aren first started indoor badminton, here, at the club in 2023. She is enthusiastic and lives for the sport, and has rapidly improved her skills.

 

Most importantly for the club in the long run, is that Eli, with Aren’s help, has agreed to manage the club into the future. So, from May 28th onward the club will have energetic younger people at its helm. At 87, after 18 1/2 years heading the club’s executive, I’m more than pleased to pass the baton on to Eli and Aren. The rest of the current executive (David, Mark & Ellen) share my perspective.

See you on court,

Happy New Year everyone. 

We hope you had a great Christmas break, and are looking forward to lots of enjoyable badminton in 2024. 

Badminton resumes at our club on Tuesday Jan. 9th at 8 pm (a late start), and thereafter runs most Tuesdays and Thursdays to May 16, usually going from 7 pm to 9:30 pm. 

The first half of our badminton season officially ends on Thursday Jan 11, following which membership renewals will be required for those wanting to avoid paying nightly fees.

Looking forward to seeing you on court,
