Brilliant Burton Manor Ladies Clinch Badminton Title

In a season that almost saw the team looking for another venue to play their home games,

Burton Manor Ladies successfully retained their 1st Division title in the Stafford & District Badminton League.

In a hard fought competition, the Burton Manor team managed to hold off closest rivals Stafford throughout the season.

Halfway through the season, the team’s progress was threatened when an arson attack destroyed the Burton Manor clubhouse.

Thanks to the swift action of the Stafford fire service, the badminton hall was saved.

"It was a terrible shock for us all" said Diane Allen "but the club has pulled together and set up a temporary social area in the gallery.

That way we have been able to continue to host matches".
