Forget Woodstock, this is Washstock! - Sunday 4th July

This year’s summer badminton social event will be a little different.  You may have heard of the Glastonbury and the Isle of Wight but the best festival in town is the “Washstock” at Wymeswold on Sunday 4th July.

Why: Because the plan is for East Leake Badminton Club members to descend on the event laden with chairs, frisbees, footballs, picnics and perhaps even chilled white wine and Pimms .  The festival is absolutely FREE (with voluntary donations) so don’t expect to see Bon Jovi, but do expect to see some plucky amateurs and some up and coming local talent.

When: The event starts at 1:30.  Lets plan to meet from 1:00pm onwards.

Also pictures from 2009 (see if you can recognise a couple of our junior badminton players):

Where: In the field off Burton Lane just below the cricket pitch and the scout hut on the junction from Wymeswold to Burton. If you're still not sure try putting Burton Lane into Googlemaps at  

Parking: There should be plenty of road side parking.

PS: If the weather is not so good the event will not go ahead.
