Dear Cambridgeshire players,
It is with sadness that I have to inform you of the death of William Baddeley.
William's son Stephen sent the following note to Badminton England:
"My father, William Baddeley, died on Thursday 4 April after a short illness. His funeral will take place at the Cambridge crematorium at 3.30pm on Friday 26th April in the East Chapel.
He was well known in (the older and disappearing) badminton circles having been heavily involved with Sussex badminton in the 80ies and Cambridge badminton in the 90ies and beyond including serving as a Member of Council.
Daniel Bates, Chair of Cambridgeshire Badminton Association
