Shiregreen Sports Badminton Club are pleased to announce that we will begin our first league badminton campaign this year.
We will be entering a Mens Plastics team into the Sheffield Badminton league for the 2018/19 season. We will be starting in the bottom Division (Division 5), and are hoping to finish in a strong position in the table at the end of the season.
Over the past few weeks we have hosted two tryout evenings open to members who have shown an interest in playing in the team this year. In attendance at these sessions were Adam Hague (League Team Secretary) and Will Stocks (League Team Captain), who together are responsible for selecting players to play in the team.
The team was chosen based on the following criteria:
An element of Correct Technique
Textbook positional play
Here are the 12 members who will be representing SSBC by playing in the Mens Plastics Team in our first league campaign (in no particular order):
Thank you to everyone who showed an interest and came to tryout for the team.
To all other members wishing to play league badminton - opportunities may arise throughout the season so keep your eyes peeled.
We hope we can count on members to cheer us along at our matches!
