GHAP Badminton First League Season

2011/12 was the first season GHAP badminton club had entered a team into any League. Previously our club has just played social badminton but with any club we have to evolve and with more members wanting to, and playing competitive badminton elsewhere we felt now was as good time as any to enter a GHAP team into a league.


Our Badminton teams home games are played at Manchester Academy on a Friday night, this is also a club night (INVITE ONLY) for players of a league standard.

2011/12 Season


Our league season was a tail of two halfs, the first half was very much about the team finding its feet in the Manchester Badminton League and our players adjusting to playing a higher standard of badminton. At the end of 2011 Disley were running away with the Division and we were one of three teams aiming for 2nd place, we were roughly in 4th place at this point. The new year brought better results, we won all 6 league matches and ended the season in 2nd place and being promoted to Division 4.


We also entered the Slann Cup/Plate, we were knocked out of the Slann Cup in the first round, however we did make it all the way to the final in the Slann Plate where we faced PVBC1 and Won 349.5 - 262 points.


Special attention needs to go to Sally Dowgill's performance during the season. She was selected for the Majorie Constantine Tournament whereby the best players over the season are selected to represent their division. Sally played women's doubles with Josie Chan(Disley) and won 7 of 8 matches and won the women's doubles title. Div5 also won the overall award
