Winner: Chris Luscome
Runner-up: Dan Amy


Wednesday, July 11, 2012


Our AGM is at 7:30 pm on Monday 23rd July.

Please come along because if we don't have enough members voting at the AGM, the club cannot continue!


Change of club night start time

The college hall has been withdrawn from use; to accommodate the fitness classes they have to provide, Totton Recreation Centre have moved our Monday night booking back by 15 minutes.

Club nights will now run from 8:15 pm to 10:45 pm (2 courts only before 9:15pm).

Our match night bookings are also changing which may mean we don't have enough court time at Totton Rec for all of our matches! Also, we would be sharing the hall with a fitness class for the first hour on both of our match nights which is obviously less than ideal.

If you know of alternate venues (for match nights, club nights or (preferably) both), please contact me!

Mixed Doubles Result

Following a single round-robin group of seven pairs, Jo & Doug were in first place and three pairs were in joint second having each won 3 games; we therefore totted up the points putting Erica & Rob in second place.

Eric and Rob then narrowly beat Jo & Doug in the final 21-19.

Winners: Erica Phillips & Rob Oliver
Runners-up: Jo Francis & Doug Dawson

Level Doubles Results

The matches were quite close all night and both finals were hard fought (up to the point Paul finally "broke" his shoulder, at least); my personal thanks go to Karen, Jo and Sarah who were kind enough to partner me in my mens doubles matches when Dan had to drop out due to work commitments.

Ladies Doubles

Jo & Wendy beat Karen & Lisa 21-20.

New MatchPoint T-Shirts

Due to popular demand, MatchPoint now has an online T-Shirt shop!

Here you'll find mens and ladies T-Shirts with either the MP logo or "Badminton Evolution" graphic on the front and the full MatchPoint logo on the back.

All prices are cost (we make no mark-up) and differ due to the base t-shirt manufacturer, printing and third-party graphics commission ("Badminton Evolution").

I hope to find the time to convert our current bitmap graphics into vector ones which will allow us to add hoodies and polo shirts to the range.

Issues for the AGM

Membership Fees

At the committee meeting of 6/7/4, it was decided that the club needs to increase it's income to cover increased costs. This decision hasn't been taken lightly - the membership fee has only risen £5 in the last six years!

At the AGM (26/7/4) the members will be asked to decide which of two options to select:

  1. £115 full membership fee, no club-night fee for full members

  2. £95 full membership fee, £1 club-night fee

Other membership fees to increase in-line.


After many years of 200% effort, Jo Francis has decided to step down as Secretary and committee member. Having reviewed a list of the tasks that Jo has accumulated, the committee has decided to split the office into Club Secretary and Match Secretary.


If you feel that you can take on the resposibilities of being a committee member or even a club officer, stand up and be counted at the AGM!
