County Announcement

This year has been a difficult one for us all and we are looking forward to getting things up and running again ASAP. Please click here for the County reports which are usually presented at the AGM. We had planned to have an AGM but when the Directors met, we decided that we did not have all the information and all the answers at that point, and that this wouldn’t be very beneficial. We do welcome everybody’s feedback and questions and please feel free to email andywoolway88@gmail.com for this. Directors will aim to answer emails promptly. 
 
Badminton England are offering financial support to clubs and the information can be found on the following link – https://www.badmintonengland.co.uk/news/badminton-england-announce-250-000-support-package-to-get-back-to-badminton/
Gloucestershire Badminton will look to help clubs financially but only if they have applied to Badminton England first, we only wish to do this as a backup. 
 
Thanks
Andy
