Terry's Tournament 2019 will be held on Wednesday 30th January.
The tournament is a light-hearted competition run in honour of our previous club chairman Terry Seaforth who ran annual tournaments at Dorking Badminton Club for many years.
The tournament is open to both current members (seniors and “gold” juniors) and past members (£5 entry fee for non-members).
For those of you not familiar with the format, we play several rounds of randomly selected games with different partners in each round.
There is an arbitrary and top-secret handicapping system designed to ensure that winning takes both luck and skill.
Wearing a tank top and/or playing in Converse shoes (Terry’s favourite attire) will lead to a favourable handicap.
We will be collecting donations for St Catherine’s Hospice: please bring money if you would like to donate!
We usually have a good turn-out, so it is likely that some people will have to sit-out at least one round.
If anyone would like to bring nibbles, that would make the sitting out more enjoyable!
It helps enormously in running the event if you can e-mail MARK to let him know in advance whether you plan to attend.
We will try to get the first round off at 8:15 sharp, so please be warmed up and ready to play by then (or if that is not possible, let Mark know if you are going to be late).
Please wear a club shirt if you have one (we have some for sale for anyone that needs one!).
We are delighted and proud to announce that our very own Mike Knott has had his years of dedication recognised by winning the BBC Surrey Outstanding Services to Sport Award.
Having already won the category at Mole Valley borough level from among a long list of nominees, Mike was shortlisted for the 2018 Surrey Sports Awards ceremony and came out top of the pile at a presentation dinner held earlier this month. Surrey Sports Awards 2018
The BBC were covering the awards ceremony and Mike was interviewed in the following Podcast (Mike’s appearance at 9mins 10 seconds). BBC PODCAST Surrey Sports Awards 2018
