Alan & ArthurMy first experience of Club and therefore League Badminton was in 1959 when I joined Victoria Badminton Club, aged 21 years.

My first partner was Alan who effectively taught me how to play Doubles and also helped me to develop my game.

I was proud to play with Alan in the teams that won the KO Cup in 1964 and the Menís Championship in 1966.

Alan and I played our first League Match in 1959 and our last match together was in 2010.

Over the full period of 64 years Alan remained a close and constant friend, something for which I will always be grateful.

I know how much badminton meant to him and how hard he worked for the sport as exampled in the excellent article by Jenny and Gill.

Cheers Alan and R.I.P.
