2023 / 2024 Season

Hi everyone,

The new season is upon us with the first set of matches due to take place this week.

On behalf of the committee, I would like to thank all those match secretaries involved in arranging their clubs games for all of their hard work and effort. It can be a thankless task, but without your efforts, many would not be able to enjoy competetive badminton.

Good luck to everyone involved in this years competitions, and don’t forget to follow your teams fortunes here as results are posted.

Junior Badminton Tournament – Sunday 28th May 2023

Please see attached details from Neil Warwick in relation to the above tournament.

Good afternoon Coaches and Junior Club/League contacts.

Please find attached details for a junior badminton tournament being held at Dolphin Leisure centre, Haywards Heath on Sunday 28th May 2023. Following the success of last year’s competition we will once again be holding two separate events (County and non-County). I would be grateful if you could distribute this information/entry form to parents, or any young player living/playing in Sussex who you feel my wish to enter. Players who have been training/competing as part of any 2022-23 Sussex County Junior Squad can only enter the County event. All other club/school/recreational player can enter either but not both. Full Conditions of entry (including DOB eligibility) can be found on the entry form.

There have been few opportunities for our younger players to compete this year so please encourage anyone who would like some competitive badminton. There are 4 different age group competitions, so depending on final entry numbers in each age group, initial rounds will be played in groups on a round robin basis, followed by knockout competition. Due to two separate competitions being run concurrently, entries for each age band are limited so please ask parents to email completed entry forms asap to the tournament secretary as shown on the form

If you have any further questions then please contact me. If you no longer wish to be included in my distribution list then please let me know and I will remove your details

Thank you

MSDBA League 2022/2023

Fantastic to see the 2022/2023 matches getting underway with a ‘young’ Triangle Tornados Team taking on an ‘experienced’ team from Brighton Racqueters. The match was played with a great spirit and ended in a deserved draw.

Best of luck to all teams and please don’t forget to send the results in to the league secretary as soon as practicable.

Good Morning Coaches and Junior contacts

With limited tournament opportunities for our juniors this season SCJB have organised two separate County and Non-County junior competitions to run simultaneously over two weekends. An U11/U13 event will be held on Sunday 15th May 2022 with the U15/U17 event held a week later on Sunday 22nd May 2022). These are open to all eligible players in Sussex, and I would be grateful if you could forward the attached entry forms to any of your juniors who may wish to enter.  

PLEASE NOTE – Juniors who have competed or trained as a member of any Sussex County squad anytime in 2021-22 can only compete in the County event. All other eligible players can choose to compete in either County or Non-County events (but not both – due to them being run simultaneously). Please see full “Conditions of Entry” on the enclosed entry forms

Please be aware of the closing date as shown for both competitions over the two weekends, and if entries are high then it will be administered on a first serve basis. Entry forms can be completed electronically or written and sent by email or post to the event organiser

If you have any questions then please contact me, or if you wish to be removed from my mailing list please let me know

Thank you

Seasons Greetings

On behalf of the MSDBA Committee, can I take this opportunity to wish all our friends and members a peaceful and relaxing Christmas break.

Hopefully we will be able to continue to pay matches next year, but we are monitoring the situation closely and will of course keep you updated with all the latest advice and guidance as it is made available.

Best Wishes
