Congratulations to St Ives Badminton Club who this weekend claimed the Handicap Cup. St Ives beat Cambridge City 2nd team by 63 points after a small handicap adjustment. This was possibly the easiest handicap to assign in a final for years, given the two sides are right next to each other in the league, and split the points in their two league games!

And commiserations to the Cambridge City side, but well done on fighting your way to the final:
Our congratulations to Crossways 1 for securing their 2nd successive Bill Pink Cup win.
Crossways won the final convincingly 8-1 over Cambridge City, in a repeat of the final from the previous 2 seasons.
Congratulations to the team below (from left to right): Steph Jong, Andrew Kidger, James Barclay, Kerry Kellett, Alison Mclellan, and Chris Lim.
P.S – Not sure about that shirt, Chris!
Unfortunately St Ives 2nd mixed team has had to withdraw. The committee have spoken to various clubs and explored our options – thankfully Cambridge City have agreed to move up from division 3 to division 2, ensuring we have 5 teams in each division!
Our thanks to Cambridge City and best of luck in the tougher division!
The league tables have been updated here http://scambsbadminton.net/index.php/mixed-doubles/
The mixed divisions have had to be rejigged slightly; we had a few additional teams and wanted to avoid having 7 teams in one divisions as some clubs were reporting they were struggling with court space last season. This meant creating a new division 3 and sliding a few teams down. We continued the “always promote last year’s winner” rule that we have used previously, which has resulted in some teams that came 2nd bottom last year being relegated. Apologies to those clubs, but our hope is that this will lead to the best badminton.
Ladies divisions now have sufficient teams for 5 teams in each division, so teams won’t be playing eachother 3 teams this season (just the usual 1 home + 1 away fixtures).
We have not yet booked the cup finals, but Sam Shepherd (our Tornament sec) will be in touch about handicaps and deadlines for first round ties shortly. More information to follow.
Most clubs have updated their club info. Please feel free to start organising your fixtures. The fixtures meeting will be at 7pm on 29th August at the Red Bull pub in Newnham. Clubs are reminded that you must send a representative to this meeting, and that paying for entries can be done by cheque at the meeting.

Enjoy the season everyone!
