This years tournament will be held on the 13th & 14th May 2017 at the York RI. To run each event there will need to be a minimum of six entries per event, hence the support of every Club in the League is essential. There is a new competition this year; a Mixed doubles 3 on the Sunday afternoon, which is exclusively for players from Division three teams. It is FREE to enter if the players have entered the 2 & 3 Mixed or the Levels Competition on the same day. We also intend running a junior tournament on the Sunday afternoon. An entry form and tournament schedule is available for download; entries to be submitted by the 30th April.

The League Dinner Dance and prize presentation will be held on the 16th June at the Kings Croft Pontefract. Tickets cost £25 and are now available. This includes a three course meal plus coffee and mints. Menu choices are available for download. Music this year will be provided by "This Way Up"
Badminton England - Loss of sponsorship
As you have probably heard UK Sport have announced it is giving ZERO funding to GB badminton’s Olympic programme, despite exceeding the medal target by winning bronze in Rio.
