Masters County Squads

Over-40, Over-50, Over-55, Over-60

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 ►.

The league teams consist 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 at venues across the South East of England.

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 15th October and 7th January 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 March 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.

Over-60

In response to several requests, an Over−60 team was added to our league entries in 2014 and with many players in this squad graduating further an Over-65 team for the annual Masters County Challenge has also been added for the first time this season. The Over-60 squad also have some friendly fixtures with Norfolk and Lincolnshire to give as many of the squad some competitive inter-county action . If any other counties are interested in arranging similar matches, please contact the County Masters Co-ordinator, Sue McKinley email ►.
