Doug Gill Trophy

Formerly known as the “Newcastle Closed”, the Doug Gill Trophy is a Hunter Badminton members’ only competition – basically it’s our Club Championships.

The event was renamed back in 2005, after the unfortunate passing of one of our most well respected and long serving members – Doug Gill.

Doug was a competitive player on the court, however it was his kind hearted nature, unselfishness behavior and overwhelming commitment to club and juniors that made him a local legend.

This event is run with a similar structure and format to the Newcastle Open… this is the one event of the year that you want to win!

Winners not only collect items such as – personal trophies, awards and prizes but all our champions get their names engraved on the perpetual shields. These honor plaques are displayed at the hall and provide bragging rights for the elite of each division, for years to come….
