Masters County Championships

Masters badminton is very active in Suffolk where we run Over-40, Over-50, Over-55 and Over-60 teams in the Masters County Championships league run by Badminton England link ►.

Each league team consists of four men and four ladies playing level and mixed doubles in matches of 12 games, followed by a brief social in the form of a post-match buffet. Teams have 6 or 8 fixtures against other counties in the Eastern Region.

Newcomers welcome

We are always keen to add newcomers to our squad. Invitations are extended to players of all ages over 40 (or who are nearly there) who have not yet got involved with one of the growing competitive and most social parts of the game. You are very welcome to come along to the practice sessions on 7th October and 30th December 2018 (11am-2pm) at Ipswich YMCA, Wellington Street, Ipswich but if you want to get involved and can’t make the session, please contact Sue McKinley as soon as possible. The season starts in October and runs through to April with matches spread across the season. This could be just the opportunity you have been looking for to represent your county and play against different opponents in new venues around the Eastern Region – you do not have to have previous county representative experience to play Masters County Badminton.

Practice Sessions

Masters players from all part of the county have playing get-togethers on 7th October and 30th December. Not everyone is an ex-county player by any means. Many of those who play for Suffolk now, never had the opportunity to represent the county at an earlier age and are very proud to be able to pull on a Suffolk shirt. The sessions will be at Ipswich YMCA, 11am to 2pm (map ►).

If you are over 40, live in Suffolk and would like to come to a session, please contact Sue McKinley email ►.
