Dear Otley Badminton Club Member

A warm welcome to our 2019-20 season! The season gets underway with our first social play session on Monday 2nd September, starting at 7.30pm and finishing at 9.45pm at Prince Henry’s Grammar School.  Timings for the sessions this season remain unchanged and are as follows:

Mondays 7.30 – 9.45pm   Fridays 7.00 – 9.15pm 
Dates of sessions for the whole season are shown below. Note that due to School holidays and a School event, there are certain Mondays and Fridays across the season where there is no social play. We have secured additional sessions on some Tuesdays in school half terms and Easter holiday this season. This is to help fulfil our league fixtures and ensure space for our American Tournament, a fun evening of play open to every member.  Members will be informed nearer times if Tuesday sessions are also available for social play. 
Monday 2nd September – Friday 25th October
Monday 4th November – Monday 16th December
Monday 6th January (American Tournament) – Friday 14th February
Monday 24th February – Friday 3rd April
Monday 20th and Friday 24th April   

No Sessions
Monday 7th October (Open Evening), Monday 28th October and Friday 1st November (Half-term holiday)
Friday 20th December – Friday 3rd January (Christmas holiday)
Monday 17th and Friday 21st February (Half-term holiday)

Match fees for this season will be £4.00 per match both home and away for any league player. Visitor’s fees will be £5 per night adult and £3 for under 18s.  This will be deducted from the membership fee if a player subsequently joins.
