    I'll do Berkshire. Hope to do quite well as the big boys will all be playing in York.

    First round fodder again, at Cheshire.
    16-17, 12-15 in an hour
    gave away far too many easy points
    more work needed on consistency...

    How did you do in the Berkshire/suffolk (Slanter +Matt)


    Also anyone going to Leicester open (5th march?) or Yorkshire satelite (hull) april 9th?


    I am trying to do the Yorkshire one but I seem to always have a niggling injury on the go. Not sure about Leicester (closing date gone) but will probably go to watch.

    Still going to Hull
    I've even put on a few pounds to give me extra, errr, slowness around the court.
    Damn it!
    Who prepared this training plan? Ronald McDonald?

    Hi there,
    I just like ask what are the rules to enter tournaments is that you have to be a member of a league club or county level and register, as i am a member of Lee's badminton academy:) .

    thank you
    Akife;)

    I think you have to be any of:

    directly affiliated to the BAofE
    affiliated to the BAofE through a club
    affiliated to another national Badminton Association

    I think this season, all clubs that affiliated to a County association had to affiliate all their members to the BAofE.

    LIBA membership would not qualify you (as far as I know)

    I don't think you can apply to the baofe directly to play satellite tourneys, you have to go through a club.

    Last year I played for a club that did not affiliate it's members to the BAofE
    So to be eligible for satellites I went directly to the BAofE and got an OnCourt membership.

    It may have changed since last year, I don't know, my new club does affiliate it's members so I haven't continued the OnCourt membership

    OnCourt did not make you eligible for Inter County Competition
    for Inter County you had to be a member through a club

    Lost in first round at Berkshire in three sets. Was on court well over an hour, they had started some third round games before I had finished. It was good watching Suzanne and Lisa go through the ladies competition without the loss of a point! I like it when the Hampshire contingent don't get it all their own way - the sulky looks from some of their ladies when they see good opposition on the draw is priceless.

    Me still. Dunno about the draw.
    I'll be the slow-moving old guy.
