New Treasurer Required

Hi all,

After many years of undertaking the role of Treasurer of the club, Morag Denver will be stepping down at this year’s AGM.  We therefore need someone to step into the role to ensure that the financials of the club can carry on being well managed.

A rough overview of the responsibilities can be found below:

  • Collect subs and visitor fees with assistance from the Assistant Treasurer and other committee members
  • Collect match fees from the captains
  • Bank any cash/cheques received
  • Pay for the sports hall each month
  • Pay for or reimburse for other sundry items e.g. league fees, tournament prizes
  • Check bank statements
  • Produce a summary sheet at the end of April showing totals, by category, of money in and money out and a simple subtraction to show how much profit/loss the club has made over the season
  • Prior to the AGM suggest the level of subs for the following season

Morag will happily hand over any relevant documentation and knowledge to help the new treasurer in their new role.

Please get in touch with Mark Jarvis or James Sedgley at a club night or e-mail if you’re interested in the role.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Morag for her work over the past years, and to say that it’s people like her that keep the club going.

Good Afternoon Badmintoners,

On Tuesday 2nd June (next Tuesday) there will be no badminton. The hall is closed due to exams and I don’t think we fancy running around all the tables and chairs trying to play.

Another small reminder – Summer Badminton is in full swing and just waiting for you to pop down for a few games. There was been a steady number but we are always after more players!! So if you are on the fence about coming down, just do it!!

Summer Badminton

The final session of the regular season will be on Tuesday 28th April. There will not be any Friday sessions after this date until the new season starts again in September.

But don’t worry, badminton will continue!

Summer badminton will be returning as of Tuesday 5th May. These session will run from 7:45 til 10pm on Tuesdays all the way through till the end of August. You will have the option of paying a one fee of £25 for every summer badminton session or you can pay £3 on each night if you’d prefer.

Christmas Period Club Sessions

Good Evening to One and All of Oakbrook Badminton Club,

As I’m sure you are aware it is getting very close to Christmas and therefore the sports hall is going to be closed, so I thought it would be worth clarifying the dates of our final session of the year and the first of the new year.

The final session of the year will be on Friday 18th December and the first session back after the festive celebrations will be on Tuesday 6th January.

I hope everyone has a cracking (pun intended) festive break and if I don’t see you before, I wish everyone a splendid Christmas and a prosperous and flourishing New Year!!

Cancelled Session – 17th June

I have received an email today from Interserve (the people who run the sports hall at Kings Edwards). They have informed me that the Sports Hall will be closed next week on 17th June due to an all day sports event which is booked in.

Sorry if this has caused you any inconvenience or undue stress.


Badminton back on, on 20 May

We thought the hall would be off-limits due to exams this week, but we’ve been told that we’ll actually be ok for Tuesday 20 May after all.

So that means badminton will go ahead as usual this Tuesday, 20 May, 1945-2200, and every Tuesday after that until the end of August, until the main season kicks in again in September.  See you there – members and visitors all welcome!  (see post below for more details of summer badminton)
