Because of the latest government advice re: the Coronavirus, the League Meeting scheduled for Tuesday 17 March is now postponed till further notice.

Eight teams are taking part in a two group round robin handicap tournament with finals between the group winners. It will be a full afternoon of badminton for the players!
Arrival at 12-30 for warm up for a 1pm start.
Following the sad loss of George Williams, could team captains please ensure Men’s League match score sheets are sent (by post or email) to Lyn Brown for the time being.
An updated score sheet containing Lyn’s contact details is available on the Members-Area page.
The Len Knight Inter-league tournament took place on Sunday 1 December. It matched the Chester League against the Crewe and Wirral Leagues.
Chester started with good wins in all the age groups against Crewe. We were ahead after the first round of games but Crewe fought back in later games. Chester held on for an overall win against Crewe.
The match against Wirral was much tougher for Chester. Wirral ladies were particularly strong overwhelming both Chester and Crewe. Wirral ended as winners for the third year running.
Huge thanks to Geoff for organising our team and to all who took part.
Division 1 teams please note that the match start time for EROS this season is 8pm (not the 7pm given in the fixtures booklet).
At the October meeting there was a proposal to add an average column (points / played) to the league tables and have them sorted on this column.
However the majority of the attendees wanted the tables to remain sorted on points. The compromise was to add the average column for reference purposes.
Badminton England registrations expire on 31 Oct 2019. Could club secretaries please make sure that all members playing in the Chester & District Badminton League are also registered with Badminton England (or, in the case of our Welsh clubs, with Badminton Wales)
Team Captains – go to the Members-Area page to access the ‘Guide: How to add results’.
Remember that it is the responsibility of the home team to enter the scores on the website within 7 days of the match being played though please enter them as soon as possible to help keep the results and tables up to date.
Well done to the U15s and U19s who took part in the Cheshire Junior Inter-league competitions on 28 April – no wins this year but great effort teams. (and, as always, huge thanks to Emma for organising)
Team photos are on the Galleries page.
Chester League fielded a team in this year’s Baxter Inter-league Moderates Tournament held on Sunday 13th January 2019. Players from Ellesmere Port, Millbrook, Stella Maris and Christleton represented Chester. In both matches, against Crewe and Wirral, the Chester team lost 6 and won 3 events.
Unfortunately we lost both our original men’s and ladies singles players to injuries the day before the competition so huge thanks to the volunteers who stood in at the last minute and well done to the whole team for a great effort against tough competition.
As always our appreciation extends to Geoff and Dave for recruiting players for the team.
