How does it work?
The Huddersfield & District Badminton League are grateful to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner for their continued support of Badminton in the local area. Our Publicity Officer, Luke Seage, will act as our contact with the Examiner and will receive your match reports and forward them to the Examiner sports team.
