Progress on all fronts

With about two thirds of the league season gone, Academy’s teams are looking pretty strong across the board. Last night’s (25 Jan) win for Mixed 1 maintains their 100% winning record. They have now won six matches on the spin this season and even more impressively are yet to drop more than a point in any match. The ladies are on a similarly strong run and are also unbeaten this season with their draw away at Kingsdown the only minor blemish from the seven matches they have played so far. Unsurprisingly, both teams are currently sitting at the top of their divisions and look to be pushing for promotion. And, if the ladies can maintain their form for their remaining three matches they are on course to become Academy’s first Division 1 team. The battle for Men’s Division 4b looks to be a tighter affair with Academy and St Ursula’s fighting for the top spot. At this stage, both teams are on the same number of points although St Ursula’s have played less matches so currently sit top of the division. It looks like it could go down to the wire with the men’s final match, at home to St Ursula’s on 8 March, being the decider.

At this point it’s difficult to draw very much from the results for Mixed 2 and Mens 2. The men appear to be finding North Somerset Division 1 significantly harder than Division 2 was last year but with postponements, results not having been entered yet and the fact that the bulk of their fixtures are arranged towards the end of the season, their actual standings in their divisions are a bit unknown at present.

Due to the current Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic we have had to cancel club nights. With Badminton England's guidance slowly changing we are hoping to resume playing shortly so watch this space for updates. Unfortunately, until we are able to resume club nights with full numbers we are unable to consider new members to the club. We will keep this under review and as soon as it becomes possible, invite more people to try the club. Please don't just turn up as we will be unable to let you play.
