NORTH FORELAND REGIONAL BADMINTON ASSOCIATION

 


At the AGM it was proposed that clubs share information and comments about the shuttles they use by completing a survey.

This has now been completed and the following compiled from the clubs feedback.

 

NFRBA Clubs - Shuttle Information - Autumn 2008

Club: Falcons Juniors

Shuttles: DSS Apollo - 78
