Gone Fishing – Networking

Gone Fishing Networking in Walsall.

This morning went Networking to Gone fishing in Walsall. It has was the first networking event I have been to in 6 months. I must say Chris Towe was a host and a half. This networking event saw me walk away with five genuine leads as contacts. Chris himself has given me two contacts. Who’d have thought that from 60 seconds talking about badminton and who I would like to see playing the sport would lead to more business.

Thank you to Mick Davies of MAD computers for nagging me in to going along.

Thank you Chris for being such a great host.

Ladies Badminton

Ladies Badminton Nights in February 2013

Are you interested in playing Ladies Badminton all night?

Female members of Ashton Badminton club got chatting one night as us ladies do and talked about holding badminton sessions just for ladies.  This will be purely so that the female club members can play ladies badminton all night.  NO mixed, NO ‘funny’ level double, just purely good old fashioned ladies doubles all night long.  No matter where you play, who you play for, just come and play ladies badminton all night.

If you enjoy playing ladies double, but don’t get the opportunity too often and would like to come along there are NO strings!

Can you help me with promotion?

After school exams made SOCIAL Badminton Session take a forced holiday, the events return needs a promotional boost.

School exams forced the SOCIAL Badminton Group at the CTC Kingshurst Academy take an unexpected holiday whilst the hall was out of action. Since the exams have finished and the school hall is now functional again the SOCIAL badminton session is back up and running. But since ‘the holiday’ (only 3 weeks ago) the session needs a bit of a boost to get it back up and running.

I know networking works so I am asking for a bit of help to promote this SOCIAL BADMINTON session in Birmingham.

Can you help me?

A stranger until you meet them – How true is it?

I was out Tuesday evening at Badminton and there were a few women there I have not meet before.  When  I started inquiring where ladies worked I discovered that Sam (Samantha) was mad about badminton and worked at a local superstore, where I happened to visit frequently and an friend of mine worked. We got chatting and she know my friend. ‘Small world’ I said.

It the next conversation I inquired where Chris (Christine) lived.  Low and behold she lived in the same street as my friend (also playing badminton that evening).  Once introduced the two ladies went on to compared notes on the road as they had both lived in the street for many years.

All in all two of the so called ‘strangers’ that were there playing badminton that evening weren’t strangers at all, just distant friends.

Calling all young badminton players – Exciting opportunity

Teachers and parents take note:-  

Is your child interested in playing sport? Are they a talented sports person?

Cheek out the Unipart and Forza tournament HERE. Where they can play badminton and with coaching through the WMPC, could play great competitive badminton.

Birmingham Bonanza – Badminton England

This weekend saw the Birmingham Bonanza Badminton Tournament organised by Badminton England.

The event was well attentend and busy on both days. I took part in a couple of events with friends and supported several of the WSBC (Warwickshire Schools Badminton Club) under 11 and under 13 kids that I coach. The family event where I played with Tamhid Uddin, we came runners up. It is an event I would encourage any one to participate in. The experience is well worth it if you want to improve your game.
