WIN­NERS: Rac­que­teers, the win­ners of the Chal­font & Dis­trict Bad­minton As­so­ci­a­tion Knock­out Cup; (above right) run­ners-up Bea­cons­field

This sea­son also saw the in­au­gu­ral CADBA Med­ley League played, with teams of two men and two women play­ing a com­bi­na­tion of mixed and lev­els dou­ble games.

Bo­hemi­ans be­came in­au­gu­ral cham­pi­ons.

As from next sea­son,


the Knock­out Cup will be re­named the John Far­ring­ton Cup in hon­our of the league’s for­mer trea­surer of many years who passed away ear­lier this year.

Rac­que­teers were the fi­nal win­ners un­der the tro­phy’s cur­rent guise af­ter they over­came Bea­cons­field in the fi­nal last week.

While Bea­cons­field won five games to win in the lev­els, 176 points to 147, Rac­que­teers came through seven games to two in the mixed, 252 points to 194.

This meant that although Bea­cons­field won eight games to seven, Rac­que­teers won by 399 points to 370 on over­all points, with four of the last five mixed games ef­fec­tively clinch­ing it for them.

Mean­while, the league is al­ways happy to wel­come new clubs and teams from the lo­cal area and, with the sea­son run­ning from Septem­ber to April, there is still time to get in­volved for the next one. Email or visit for more de­tails.
