Otley on a high ahead of new badminton campaign
Two of Otley Badminton Club’s six teams will be playing at higher levels as they prepare for the new season.
The men’s A team finished as close runners-up in Division Three of the Leeds League, so will be playing in Division Two next time.
This is a major step up and much tougher matches are expected, especially with captain Toby Wood being unavailable for most of the season.
Meanwhile, the Harrogate League second team also gained promotion and will now play in Division Two, with the first team continuing in Division One.
This is the first time that both Otley teams in this league have competed in the top two divisions.
The new season starts on Monday, September 2 at Prince Henry’s sports hall. Potential new members can get more details by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
