Lancashire Master from Roger Taylor

Lancashire Masters – Season 2019/2020

Following the Masters open day on Sunday 25th August, to which 40+ players came to, the season has now progressed at a pace.
Many Masters Tournaments have taken place and Lancashire players have been prominent on the podiums. Last week was the National Championships held at the University of Hereford in Hatfield. The following players were successful:
Gold – Angela Brown (70’s Mixed), Bill Hamblett (65’s Mens & Mixed), Graham Holt (65’s Mens), Graham Robinson (65’s Singles).
Silver – Roger Taylor (60’s Mens), Barbara Gillett (60’s Mixed), Mohammed Suleman (60’s Mixed), Avril Sloane (65’s Ladies)
Bronze – Roger Leigh (55’s Mens), Graham Robinson (65’s Mens & 65’s Mixed), Ann Hurst (65’s Ladies & 65’s Mixed), Graham Holt (65’s Mixed)
In January all the County teams will travel to various venues across the country to compete in the Masters County Championships. Historically we have been successful at this event, so fingers crossed!
The Lancashire Silver Masters Tournament will take place over the weekend of February 1st and 2nd. The tournament will take place at Markland Hill in Bolton as follows:
Mens and Ladies Doubles – Saturday 1st February
Mixed Doubles – Sunday 2nd February.
Online entry is available. Food and drink will be available and the bar will be open throughout the competition. A sports therapist is available on Saturday for the those badminton aches and pains.
Please make the effort to play in our tournament.
