Apologies were received from Jenny, John and Celia



Tony, Sue, Lorna, Pat, Linzi, Helen


Ian Kendal

Before the meeting began, members took a few minutes to remember Ian who passed away in March.

Ian had been a member for many years, and had acted as treasurer until 2016. Sue, Pat and Tony attended Ian’s funeral.


Matters Arising

Tony reported that a ‘Confidentiality Health Disclosure’ should be included on a membership form, or as a minimum, we should verbally ask new members if they are willing to disclose health issues.


Chair’s Report


Secretary’s Report

Helen reported that members had suggested that the club form a WhatsApp group to improve communication between members.



Pat reported that we used 24 dozen shuttles this season, and we have 18dozen in hand. We almost have enough for next season, and we could buy the remainder from Newquay rather than buy a large quantity from the wholesaler.


Junior Report

Team Reports

The teams had a successful season. Duncan captained the mens team which easily won div 3 and will be promoted to div 2 next season. The combination and ladies team both came second in their divisions.

It was decided to enter the same team next year, but home matches will be played on Friday evenings.

Truro played in the final of the Carlton Cup, but were beaten by St Austell.


Treasurer’s Report

See attached for the accounts which Pat produced.

Pat reported that we spent £200 more than we received this season, but adding an outstanding bill from the previous season, our loss this year was £932. The club has been spending more than we receive for the last few seasons, and our surplus has diminished to £1,735.57. Consequently, subs will have to be increased, and the following rates were agreed.


Seniors           £120

Students         £75

Match Fees     £5

Visitors           £6

Instalment     £60 Sept + £60 Nov
