We had a record total of 75 people attending and the best presentations and workshops we have ever put together. We are starting now organizing the 2019 Symposium in Cambridge UK. Many presentations and workshops will be offered in badminton and squash in the next Symposium with possibilities to just attend certain days or presentations/ workshops.

This will take all summer and will be adding many new sections on the website working together with our managers to provide everything our members require online. We also have an agreement with Pro-T-One to test to do the lab tests for our string play tests. The first test is in this issue with Yonex Poly Tour Strike. We will now combine these tests with our playtests in the coming issues. Welcome to our two new Corporate Members, Stringlab and Sergetti. I hope everyone will take the time and contact both members and see what they have to offer.
