Finals - 8 February 2017

Hundreds of fans packed into centre:mk to watch the action unfold as Team Derby and University of Nottingham Badminton went head-to-head for the trophy. With no fewer than six Olympians involved in the clash, it was the perfect finale to a memorable season.

Team Derby were chasing their second AJ Bell NBL title after winning in the league's inaugural year in 2015, but it wasn't to be as University of Nottingham Badminton took the victory 3-1 to become 2016/17 champions.

Match night five - 9 January 2017

Match-night 5 saw tight encounters aplenty as Birmingham Lions spoiled the Bristol Jets party, edging them out 3-2 in what was their first home fixture of their inaugural season to ensure they top the standings with less than a month to go until the Championship Final on February.

Match night one - 17 October 2016

Birmingham Lions began their AJ Bell National Badminton League title defence with an impressive 4-1 victory over new franchise Suffolk Saxons, but were forced to come from behind at the iconic Great Hall.

There was joy too for last season's beaten finalists, Loughborough Lightning, who made it four straight wins on the road with their own 4-1 win away at Surrey Smashers as they too recovered from a first event loss.

We are delighted by the Government’s recent decision to protect savers by banning pensions cold-calling as part of a wider crackdown on retirement scams.

I did the sprint distance triathlon. I really enjoyed the swim and the cycling sections, but really struggled with the heat on the run. Not only did I have jelly legs when I got off the bike, I also had a stitch for the first half lap of the run. I should had done more training!
I'm really glad I did it and would love to do it again next year - I just hope it's a little cooler.

I took part in last year's London triathlon but due to an injury earlier in the year I could only complete the swim and bike legs.
A colleague of mine kindly did the run leg for me. 2016 was therefore to a certain extent unfinished business, but the weather on the day really made me work for that final run leg!

Great event and already looking forward to 2017!

I was harangued in to it by another colleague after a few drinks who then dropped out from our team. Luckily we had the wonderful and consummate professional Harry Wiltshire who stepped in to do our cycling leg (I was doing the running leg).

Fuelled by a kebab and cocktails from the previous night, the running leg was hard going but I took inspiration from the crowd cheering me on which got me passed the line.

Great experience and would love to do it again!
