Relegation for Notts Badminton 1st Team

Despite a determined effort during the last Premier A weekend in Milton Keynes, out 1st Team has been relegated to Division 1 after a decade at that level.

In a season during which they have been unable to call upon the services of our current and former male international players, the team did really well to defeat Avon 6-5 on Saturday and then lose closely to Sussex 5-6 in the evening - despite being a man down through injury.

On Sunday morning the team lost 7-4 to Cheshire in a relegation battle which ultimately saw two of the historic power houses of English Badminton, Notts and their near neighbours Warwickshire, relegated to Division 1.

Despite scoring 15 points over the weekend, the damage had already been done at the previous Premier A weekend in late January.

We will look to regroup during the Summer and will be looking to return to the Premier Division at the first time of asking next season.

The commitment by both the players and our support team has been fantastic as always - thank you.

On the same weekend both our 2nd and 3rd Teams retained their positions in their respective Divisions.

The players that represented Notts 1st were :-
Rohan Midha
Neil White
Ed Thorpe
Matt Stacey
Ben Sanders

Li Lian Yang
Serena Midha
Emily Witts
Alex Langley
Kim Clague
