Borders Handicap Badminton Tournament

Over the past few years it has become increasingly difficult to run the Borders Badminton League in its current form with several fixtures being cancelled.

The committee has therefore decided to try something different this season. It is proposed to run a handicap tournament once a month on a Sunday afternoon, restricted to members of badminton clubs in the Borders. The committee can now confirm the following tournament dates:-

14th October, 2018

18th November, 2018

20th January, 2019

17th February, 2019

17th March, 2019

The Sunday afternoon tournaments will commence at 1-30pm in the main games hall at Earlston High School. Each tournament will be played to a conclusion on the day of the tournament so players do not need to worry about not being available for a particular tournament date.

Players will be given a handicap at the start of the tournament. Players will play with a different partner in each game with each game being played to 21 points. Only one game will be played with each partner. Games will comprise level and mixed doubles only. At the start of each game the handicaps of each pairing is added together and that will be the handicap used in the game. After each game the points that each player scores will be added to their overall score. Players do not necessarily need to win each game to win the tournament or be runner up. Handicaps will normally be adjusted after each tournament but may also be adjusted during the tournament by the tournament referee. The tournament entry fee will be £5/player. The tournament will be open to anyone age 16, or older. Each player will play the same number of games on the day of the tournament with the top two lady and gent scorers emerging as winners and runners up.

Please download the poster and share it with your club members. It is important that details of this new handicap tournament are circulated to ALL the clubs in the Borders.

To enter the tournament in October please either add your name to the event that has been created on Facebook or add your name below the Facebook thread using 'Comment' before the end of September to allow the committee to meet and set the initial handicaps. Clicking 'Like' will not be taken as your intention to play in the tournament. Alternatively, please inform any member of the committee before the end of September that you would like to enter the tournament.

Borders Badminton Group Sponsorship

Dear Sirs

At the end of your very kind 3 year sponsorship of £500 per annum towards the costs of hiring facilities for our Borders badminton squad training and competitions, I write to extend our sincere thank you for your invaluable support, the sponsorship made a huge difference to our funds and took so much pressure off our expenditure.

As a group we are looking forward to the start of the season and encouraging more young players into the life long sport of badminton.

Please feel free to follow us on our website and Facebook page.

Once again, thank you so very much for your sponsorship and support.

Kind regards

Season 2018-19

1st Aug 2018

Borders Badminton Group Sponsorship

I am writing to you regarding a sponsorship opportunity within the Borders Badminton Group.  Our group has been in existence for more than 30 years and we support and promote Borders Badminton to all age groups. Our main aim is to coach performance and development squads aging from 8-17 year olds, primarily at club level with a main focus on support for our junior players.  The Group play competition level badminton representing the Borders at a number of competitions outside the Border region, for example Tyneside, Lothian, Perth, Glasgow and Wishaw.  The group also organises Primary and Secondary School Competitions within the Borders, to enable all abilities to play, join in and compete.

Over the years many of the Borders squad players have gone onto compete at National level which is a great honour for the region, players, families, their schools and clubs.

We have previously never been in the position where we have had to seek sponsorship to aid with the costs of the hall hire and shuttle fees for training, but five years ago badminton lost its target sport status within the Borders which meant we have lost an annual income of £3,000.  This has proved a hard blow to the Borders but following this Borders Sports councils have retracted funding for groups and prefer to aid individuals and clubs.  This means the loss of £300 from the 4 sports councils leaving us with the only income this year from parents or guardians of the players (who already support with travel and sports equipment costs). 

The types of annual costs are: our hall fees are approx £1100; shuttles cost £600; competition entry can cost up to £4000 alone to allow three different age groups the opportunity to participate.

We have previously been privileged to receive a three year sponsorship which covered a partial cost of the hall rental, this has now come to an end.  A local Border sponsor has generously sponsored our trophies (and also supports with coaching within the group).  Administration costs are also provided by another local company (along with more coaching support).  All of which have been greatly received. 

As a group we fully appreciate the Scottish Borders is one of the most generous (and active) areas in Scotland when it comes to sports sponsorships.  Borders Badminton can offer great exposure for a local brand, with shirt logos, press coverage post events, along with club and interclub social media coverage.   If you would like more information on our organisation, please feel free to make contact with us.

Yours faithfully

Christine Wylie
