July 2018 - Hummersknott Badminton Club Summer Tour

Sunday 15th Jul 2018

 The Tour began in Bergen, Norway carried on to Oslo and then to Copenhagen, Denmark. Next stop was Sweden and the first town of Vaxjo, before staying in Stockholm and also visiting Uppsala. The youger players then returned home whilst 11 older ones went on to tallin and Tartu, Estonia and then played in an International Tournament in Valka, Latvia, before ending in Helsinki.

12 matches in all and a bonus of a floorball session in Vaxjo and Bubble Football in Stockholm.

The players represented Darlington specifically and the UK in general superbly, and were well received in each place forging some excellent international friendships with young people wherever they travelled.

The club are indebted to our financial supporters - multitudes of customers who donated at bagpacks. In addition substantial support for this tour came from Darlington Building Society with additional help from Darlinton Rotary and Round Table Clubs.

This brings the total countries where HBC players have been to play sport to 41.
