Sad News

We are sad to hear the news that Jeremy Pearson died over the weekend at home.

Jeremy made a huge contribution to the league and to his club Christleton. He was Chester & District League treasurer and was involved with organising junior tournaments for many years.

Next League Meeting

The next league meeting will take place on 4 August 2021 at Upton Pavilion from 7pm to 9pm.

The aim of the meeting will be to get the ball rolling after a frustrating year. In particular to get an update from clubs on their position (or expected position) and discuss proposals for the future structure of the league. The Agenda can be found on the Members-Area.

It is important that someone attends from each club so that we can make decisions on the way forward.

6 per team?

With issues of diminishing teams, diminishing numbers of players and clubs having an imbalance of men and women members the options for the 2021/22 season are:

  1. No change – continue as previous seasons with a balancing out of teams across the divisions
  2. Change to a new structure

For your information, a proposal has been received to change the mixed league format to teams of 3 men and 3 ladies maintaining 4 divisions of approximately equal numbers of teams.

This will be discussed at the next league meeting but if you have any initial views or wish to submit alternative proposals please contact the League Secretary, Mark (secretary@chesterbadminton.co.uk).

Coronavirus 2019/20

The 2019/20 season had to be ended as it stood in March 2020 when play was suspended because of Coronavirus. The League winners therefore were:

Div 1  Millbrook
Div 2 Christleton B
Div 3  Norley A
Div 4  Hawarden A
Men’s  Christleton M1
